Chronic fatigue syndrome still stands poorly studied.
The majority groups of researchers discovered the reasons of insurmountable tiredness and faintness, but up to present time they hadn't reached the one common opinion.
As many people experience CFS after viral infections, it was supposed to associate chronic fatigue with some viruses (human herpesvirus 6, Epstein-Barr virus, Coxiella and some others). Another cause (or additional one) might be disbalance of hormonal levels.
It was also assumed that CFS development might be related with debilitation of immune system.
If you're a woman in age between 40s and 50s, you're in high risk group. Moreover, this syndrome might have genetically predisposition and is closely connected with allergy and stress factors.
In addition to permanent tiredness, other symptoms of CFS are:
- Memory extenuation and decreased concentration ability
- Joint and muscle pain
- Sleeping disorders such as insomnia, sleep deprivation, weariness even after normal sleep
- Sore throat
- Algetic and tumid neck and armpits lymph nodes
These signs might be permanent during 6 month to think about CFS presence.
What can you do? First of all, modify you ration by adding vitamin-full, magnesium and potassium-contained foods. Avoid products that can potentially encourage allergy.
You really need to reduce all stress factors.
It's a good idea to appeal to your doctor, who can advise you cognitive behavioral therapy, some types of alternative medicine or some medications. The most common drugs, which are prescribed in these cases, include antidepressants, anti-anxiety medications, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs depending on your symptoms.
