1) Qi stagnation (modern medicine will manifest as depression, frustration or not happy, lack of interests, etc.)
2) Qi weakness: this is related to malnutrition, does not eat well, picky with food, etc., or a weak digestive system, etc.
Acupuncture combined with Chinese herbs will be a good solution.
Alexandre Hillairet, DAOM.
From acupuncture and an oriental medicine point of view, fatigue is part of energy def. By boosting your energy through acupuncture treatment or herbal supplements, this will help you a lot.
Hope you gain benefit sooner by seeking an acupuncturist soon.
Take good care,

Fatigue can be caused by any number of things, some serious medical issues and some simple. It is best to first seek a doctor to investigate why you are fatigued so that the correct treatments can be integrated.
Dr. Pai Hsiang Peng, L.Ac.
Yes, it certainly can, but in addition, I would highly recommend you get a vitamin/mineral work up, via blood work, performed by your primary care physician (PCP). Usually, there are deficiencies that are contributing to fatigue, so good quality supplements may help tremendously as well.
Best of luck!
Good luck! I hope you get relief soon! It's no fun feeling tired all the time.
First make sure there isn't a serious condition that is affecting your body with some general tests, if the MD's are not able to find anything or if they do and they can help but you want complimentary help from acupuncture, then be sure to communicate this between both your MD and the Licensed Acupuncturist you decide to work with.
Yours in health!
