CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME

Patients suffering from Chronic fatigue syndrome experience several months or more of extreme fatigue without an apparent underlying medical condition.

Though scientists do not know the root cause of chronic fatigue syndrome, there are several theories, including viral infections and psychological stress. The most likely theory is that CFS is triggered by a combination of factors.

Symptoms typically involve:

  • Restless sleep.
  • Difficulty focusing, concentrating or remebering.
  • An onset of dizziness standing up from a bed.

Experts also call this condition myalgic encephalomyelitis, or systemic exertional intolerance disease (SEID).

The cause of chronic fatigue syndrome is unknown, although there are many theories — ranging from viral infections to psychological stress. Some experts believe chronic fatigue syndrome might be triggered by a combination of factors.

No single test exists to confirm if a patient has a diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome. Patients usually require a series of medical tests to rule out an array of health problems that present similar symptoms. Treatment for chronic fatigue syndrome focuses mostly on improving symptoms.
