I was searching to find a quote or some such to explain why I hadn’t been blog active and came upon this word – Malaise. It is used to describe a general feeling of discomfort, illness or unease whose exact cause is difficult to identify. Other describing words for Malaise are unhappiness, restlessness, unease and melancholy. So if you have been feeling off colour this could be why.
Describes me to a T. Not that I have been lounging around as they did in the old days but certainly not been feeling tip top.
Malaise can often be mixed up with fatigue but the difference between the two are- Malaise refers to an overall feeling of discomfort and lack of well being. Fatigue is extreme tiredness and lack of energy or motivation for everyday living.
For me I am blaming the dog. Since his accident I have been full of cold, catarrh and coughs. Stuck emotions!
What are the treatment options for malaise?
as written by Healthline
Malaise is not a condition in and of itself. Therefore, treatment will focus on addressing the underlying cause.
Predicting what this treatment will consist of is unlikely because malaise can be due to a wide variety of conditions. That’s why an examination and testing is necessary. This information can help your doctor make a proper diagnosis.
Treatment for the cause of your malaise can help control the feeling and prevent it from becoming overwhelming. You can minimize your malaise by:
- getting plenty of rest
- exercising regularly
- eating a balanced, healthy diet
- limiting stress
Malaise can be difficult to prevent because it has many possible causes.
Keeping a record of your physical and mental well-being can help you identify the causes and triggers of your malaise. Keep a journal to help you track your malaise. You can present your findings to your doctor if necessary.
