Dangers of fatigue

APPOMATTOX, VA (WWBT) - There is one big thing that everyone needs. Something you may take for granted and it directly impacts your health-- sleep.

In this week's Neighborhood Health Watch we discus why you need sleep more than you think.

Dr. Christopher Marshall in the Tri-cities is concerned with fatigue.

There are many problems related to lack of sleep.

He suggests you adopt a structured sleep schedule. Also, adopting a healthy diet and regular exercise can and will help energy levels and normalize sleep patterns.

If symptoms persist for more than a few weeks or are interfering with daily activities, seek medical attention.
