Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

What is Chronic fatigue syndrome?

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), also known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), is a debilitating and complex disorder characterized by profound fatigue that persists for at least six months and is not significantly alleviated by rest. The fatigue experienced by individuals with CFS is often severe and not due to underlying medical or psychiatric conditions. CFS can significantly impair a person’s ability to carry out daily activities and can last for years.CFS is a diagnosis of exclusion, meaning other medical conditions with similar symptoms must be ruled out before a diagnosis of CFS is made. Healthcare providers conduct a thorough medical history, physical examination, and various tests to rule out other potential causes of the symptoms.The exact cause of CFS remains unknown, but various factors have been proposed, including viral infections (such as Epstein-Barr virus), immune system dysfunction, hormonal imbalances, and genetic predisposition.
