    I believe it could be yes, and vice versa. I think anxiety can lead to hyper-arousal and excess release of stress hormones, the result could be poorer/lighter sleep, fatigue and so on.

    Guess so. If anything, being anxious just makes me exhausted, if that makes sense.

    Yeah, but it can be a whole host of other ailments, low thyroid, a low grade infection, adrenal burnout, chronic fatigue syndrome, sleep issues, even nutritional deficiencies. Best thing to do first, is to get a full blood panel draw from your doc., to rule out other possibilities besides anxiety.

    I would say that makes sense, I usually feel anxious and exhausted all at the same time.

    Fatigue is definitely a symptom of anxiety. When I have gone a long period of time feeling anxious, I feel exhausted and I can't stop yawning either. Anxiety really takes a lot of energy out of our bodies.
