|Chronic Fatigue is becoming a more common complaint heard throughout the world. It can be a symptom of an un-diagnosed disease or a general problem that can interfere with your health and well-being. Some people get so fatigued that they essentially become disabled, they can have adverse reactions to their medical treatments and/or depression can set in due to the effects of the symptoms and lack of any clear diagnosis. It is also known or diagnosed as C.F.S., Fatigue-chronic, Chronic fatigue and immune dysfunction syndrome (CFIDS), Tiredness, Weariness, Exhaustion, Lethargy, or Yuppie flu. A loose definition is that it's a condition of prolonged and severe tiredness or weariness (fatigue) that is not relieved by rest and is not directly caused by other conditions. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) describes C.F.S. as a distinct disorder with specific symptoms and physical signs, based in the exclusion of other possible causes.|
|What Causes Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?||Back To Top|
|The exact cause of chronic fatigue syndrome (C.F.S.) is unknown. Some researchers suspect it may be cause by a virus, such as human herpes virus-6 (HHV-6). However, no distinct viral cause has been identified. Recent studies have shown that chronic fatigue syndrome MAY be caused by inflammation of the pathways in the nervous system and that this inflammation MAY be some sort of immune response or auto-immune process. C.F.S. may occur when a viral illness is complicated by an inadequate or dysfunctional immune response. In many cases, the fatigue is enhanced by boredom, unhappiness, disappointment, lack of sleep, or hard work. Other factors such as age, prior illness, stress, environment, or genetic disposition may also play a role. C.F.S. most commonly occurs in women aged 30 to 50.|
