Fatigue from standing?
« on: October 31, 2008, 09:14:58 PM »
Anyone else get this?  I notice I just wear out after standing for awhile.  Today I noticed it after two hours. 

Is there any way to get rid of that?  Build standing endurance? 

I do exercise.  More today, so maybe that has something to do with it.

    Consider what you eating for breakfast, lunch or any other meal of the day. personally if I were feeling fatigue from standing I'd consider my diet and life style, so I'd probably look for a number of books on diets ect ect.
    Well thats the first step I'd take.

It could possibly be anemia. A lack of Iron or Vitamin B12 would make you feel tired and weak as your blood cannot get enough oxygen around your body because it is not producing enough haemoglobin (which makes up red blood cells).

Simply take more Iron and B12 in your diet and this would clear up. If it doesn't, consult your doctor.

Of course, not eating much during the day can also have this effect, which could lead to dizzyness and eventually fainting. So eat more too.

I think it's just lack of oxygen around the body, nothing to worry about yet.

I work standing pretty much all day long.
Walking back and forth helps a bit. It got better with time as I got used to it.

Are you sleeping enough? If I dont sleep the whole bloody room keeps spinning on me.

Bingo.  Sleep.  I haven't been sleeping enough and 'wear into' that until I don't notice it anymore.  It did feel like the room was moving a bit too.

I've noticed it though too in the past.  Also during a time when I wasn't getting a lot of sleep though.

I figured exercise would help but I wonder now if it really has much effect at all.

Walking helps. It pumps the blood up out of your legs.
If you do it during the standing of course.

I used to have to stand for hours on end, never developed fatigue but my feet did start to ache a bit :P
So guess this post is kind of irrelevant...lol

I worked at a hotel once where I just basically stood behind the desk in one place for 8 hours, and the first week or so at the end of the day my legs ached terribly and were soo tired. :P  But after that first few days they got used to it.

If nothing else, exercise helps the sleep habits.  I always have a good sleep if I've gotten my legs good and tired on a strenuous bike ride sometime during the day.

I get fatigue from sitting...

My right knee really hurts when I bend it, and I don't know why.

I gotta see a doctor for this...

Well I can sit and keep my right leg extended, but what if you're on an airplane? 

I have to sit in either first class or very close to the front in order to feel comfortable.

True for sitting.

All still true I think.  I think I remember what this was about.  Being out of your normal routine can cause fatigue too.

Imo even two hours is too little to be already winded up, are you sure there is not a underlying condition? Like overweight

The most effective thing I've found, besides the obvious -- sleep, rest, etc. -- is really strong liquid coffee.



A pot of coffee later, no fatigue.
