what does cancer fatigue feel like?

Tired: Fatigue is not different because it is due to having cancer, except that it can occur without more typical causes such as high levels of activity or exercise. So some cancer patients feel tired all the time; they "have no energy" to get up and to things, even necessary things such as buying food, making dinner, going to work, etc. Affected patients may be sleepy, or may not sleep well.
