The Cause of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Similar to FIBROMYALGIA, Chronic Fatigue may occur after an infection such as a cold, Bronchitis, Mononucleosis, Hepatitis, or intestinal illness. Chronic Fatigue can start during or shortly after a period of high stress, or come on gradually without any clear starting point and any obvious cause. The syndrome is a flu-like condition that can drain the body’s energy, sometimes lasting for years. Sufferers previously healthy and full of energy may experience extreme fatigue, weakness, and headaches as well as painful joints, achy muscles, and painful lymph nodes.
Chronic Fatigue Statistics
Women are diagnosed with CFS 2 – 4 times more frequently than men. An estimated 500,000 people in the United States have CFS compared to the 10 -12 million suffering from the symptoms of Fibromyalgia. A person of any age or race can end up with a CFS diagnosis.
What Does a CFS Diagnosis Entail?
Doctors find it difficult to diagnose chronic fatigue because it has overlapping symptoms of fibromyalgia and other associated syndromes and diseases. There is no diagnostic or laboratory procedure to confirm the presence of the condition. Physicians often rule out certain conditions before they diagnose CFS. The diagnosis is based on the exclusion method. This means that before diagnosing CFS, the physician has to rule out any other possible disease or associated syndrome that may be causing fatigue and related symptoms.
2. Sore throat
3. Painful and mildly enlarged lymph nodes in the neck or armpits
4. Unexplained muscle aches
5. Pain that moves from one joint to another without swelling or redness
6. Headaches of a new type, pattern, or severity
7. Sleep disturbances
8. Extreme exhaustion after normal exercise or exertion
According to the International CFS Study Group (a group of scientists, researchers, and doctors brought together by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to determine a standard method for defining and diagnosing cfs), a patient meets the cfs diagnosis criteria when unexplained persistent fatigue occurs for six months or more with at least four of the eight primary symptoms also present.
