What is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is known to be one of the most common chronic diseases in the United States. It is characterized by prolonged fatigue that affects daily activities, mental concentration, and sleep.
The Symptoms of CFS
There are many symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome, but the main ones are cognitive impairments, body pain, sleep disorder, and lack of energy. Another way to think about it is that chronic fatigue syndrome makes you feel like you have the flu every day all year long. There are other symptoms, but these are the most common.
Causes of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is an illness that affects 1 out of every 10,000 people in the United States. The cause of CFS is not known, but it’s believed to be both environmental and genetic. There are many theories about what causes it. One popular theory is that it occurs when our bodies are exposed to an infection or other stressor (like radiation).
How to Beat Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
I have been fighting CFS for about two years now. I found the spot where a simple lifestyle change could make a huge difference. How? Stop all meds and treatments! No more IVs, no more antibiotics, no more vitamins, no more sleep medications, no more food sensitivities tests. The way to beat CFS is by going full force into lifestyle changes.
Tips for Beat CFS
CFS is a debilitating condition that causes extreme fatigue, cognitive dysfunction, pain, and other symptoms. It’s also hard to pin down what causes it. The first step is to see your doctor who will take a look at your symptoms to see if they are consistent with CFS or other disorders. Research suggests that taking short naps can be helpful for those with CFS.
A few months before I got diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome, I was the victim of a car accident. One year later, I was walking down George Washington’s hallowed steps with an incredible sense of relief and accomplishment.
