People often experience tiredness and fatigue after a long day at work. However, being tired can sometimes be a symptom of fatigue or even chronic fatigue syndrome, which is a serious medical condition. While the symptoms of feeling tired and fatigued often overlap each other, differentiating between them can be confusing. That’s why these terms are often used interchangeably. Medically, they are not the same thing.

Tiredness is something that you feel after a hectic day, and it indicates that your body needs physical rest. However, when you are fatigued, you feel lazy and tired even after getting a good night’s sleep. Still, if you’re confused about whether you’re tired or fatigued, take this quiz designed by Health Shots, especially for you.
