Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: What is CFS, How it affects Life, a Treatment for Chronic Fatigue

There are several different sleep disorders that plague many people. One that is particularly complex is chronic fatigue syndrome, CFS. As the name implies, chronic fatigue syndrome causes a person to have many bouts of fatigue along with a variety of other symptoms that affect their life. Some of the other symptoms, beside fatigue, include muscle aches, impaired memory or mental concentration, malaise that lasts longer than 24 hours, and insomnia. People who suffer from CFS typically function at a lower level of activity than before they became ill. Often, cases of chronic fatigue syndrome can go undiagnosed and untreated for many years.

CFS isn’t a cut and dry case. There are several “case definitions” to identify true cases of CFS. One case involves the patient suffering from sever chronic fatigue for at least six consecutive months. This fatigue is not due to overexertion, and conditions will be ruled out by physician. The second case is that the fatigue interferes daily with regular activities and work. Along with the first two cases, the patient must suffer from four of a variety of symptoms, such as malaise, unrefreshing sleep, joint pain without swelling or redness, severe headaches and tender lymph nodes.

There is no set cause for chronic fatigue syndrome identified by doctors and scientists. The current hypothesis is that CFS is caused by multiple triggers, such as infections, a faulty immune system, lack in improper diet and nutrition and stress.

Along with a lack of cause, there is no set cure for CFS nor has a proper prescription medication been created. To get closer to a solution, it is recommended that those diagnosed with CFS monitor and keep track of their bouts of fatigue. Be sure to keep your doctor up to date with the case and let them know of any changes. While there is no set cure for CFS, those who are diagnosed can help with research to find a cure and understand it completely.

  1. Please try the " lightening process" it's a known treatment for CFS and literally saved me. Check out the website for more recovery stories or the blog about it on my channel :)

  2. i know exactly how he feels. i was diagnosed with fibromyalgia when i was 16 years old and ever since i have been plagued with debilitating brain fog, mental and physical exhaustion. it took me 8 years! to get a diagnosis of CFS. Even with the diagnosis i am still just as frustrated because there is no cure and every medication i have tried has only made things worse. All i can do is hope that one day i can live a semi normal live instead of being a spectator to it.

  3. I don't think ME is a real disease like cancer or diabetes because there's no biological test to prove it. I'm not saying that people are making up the way they feel or they are lying, I just don't understand why the sufferers want it to be called a "real disease".
    I think ME sufferers struggle to function in modern day life because its too fast passed and stressful. Their bodies are reacting to the stressful dog eat dog, fast passed environment and I think they should address the environment as the cause of their problems rather than trying to label themselves with an illness. I'm also against "cognitive behaviour therapy" because this forces the individual to change as oppose to the environment.
    Did you know that DRAPETOMANIA was a mental illness coined by American physician Samuel Cartwright in 1851. It caused black slaves to run away and symptoms included becoming sulky, dissatisfied so the cure was whipping the devil out of the patient and in extreme cases cutting of the toes so they could no longer run.
    I think this is a good parallel as if you can't handle the stress of modern day life you get labelled not just with ME but any mental illness in the DSM.
    I've done video's explaining why psychiatry is a fraud, come on people WAKE UP!
