Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is explained as a chronic complex disorder showing up as a long term fatigue ...that is not improved by getting adequate rest ...long hours of work, physical activity and mental activity may even make the symptoms worse.
If you experience symptoms of short term memory, can't concentrate, sore throat, muscle pain, joint pain, headaches and restless sleep to name a few, you may have CFC ...another criteria is that you must experience these symptoms for at least six months or more.
A few other symptoms have been reported. Add to the previous list ...abdominal pain intolerance to alcohol, gas, bloating, chest pain, chronic cough, diarrhea, earaches, dry eyes and mouth, irregular heartbeat, neck and jaw pain, stiffness, night sweats, nausea, depression, irritability, anxiety, panic attacks, shortness of breath, skin sensitivity and weight loss.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome affects millions of people in this country alone.
Anyone can have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome ...people of any age, gender or social group can have the symptoms. The experts agree that women have four times more chance of CFS than men and research indicates that CFS is more common in the 25 -50 years old group. Even children can develop the symptoms mostly during the teenage years.
Although it has been stated that CFS has no known causes ...there are numerous thoughts and theories about the cause of the syndrome. Some believe and blame viruses because CFS symptoms sometime follows other infections. Some believe CFS symptoms have something to do with the environment while still others believe CFS has a lot to do with diet and lifestyles.
To make things more difficult ...there are no outside physical signs that identify CFS and no diagnostic tests to evaluate it. CFS is mostly diagnosed by ruling out other similar conditions such as diabetes, mononucleosis, Lyme disease, thyroid conditions, multiple sclerosis and depression.
Since there is no known cause for CFS and no single therapy exist that helps all CFS patients ...the usual recommendation is lifestyle changes, plenty of quality rest, less stress-chill out, watch the diet, and gentle stretching exercise ...don't over do the exercise.
Recovery rate runs at about 50%. However, everyone is different when it comes to recovery from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and full recovery is said to be rare.
Another note ...although no known cure for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome exist today, there are some natural remedies we use to make life with CFS much better.
