    What is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?

    In order to better understand this condition we can easily separate the words for a clearer meaning to this medical term. Chronic is a word that describes a constant or returning factor. If something doesn’t seem to ever go away or keeps coming back just when you think that it is over this is the definition of chronic. Fatigue means tiredness or exhaustion. With fatigue it doesn’t just have to follow significant mental or physical strain. Fatigue, especially when talked about in terms of this medical condition, can occur at any time and without any reason whatsoever.

    This can make life very difficult and be debilitating. Everyday activities such as chores, driving, shopping, or any other situations or activities that a person frequently does or is a part of, can drain their physical strength. This can happen to the point of utter exhaustion.

    Symptoms for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome are generally noticed through a six month period. Obviously, one person should not self diagnose this type of condition after only a few weeks as there could likely be an underlying cause. It is important for you and your doctor to rule out other health issues that may be present where fatigue is merely a symptom such as pregnancy, cancer, infection, etc.
