Chronic Fatigue Q & A

What is chronic fatigue syndrome?

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a complex condition that is often challenging to diagnose. Chronic fatigue symptoms vary greatly, and your experience is unique. In addition to extreme tiredness and fatigue despite getting sufficient rest, chronic fatigue syndrome causes other symptoms including:

  • Poor memory
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Enlarged lymph nodes

Chronic fatigue can also cause complications including depression, anxiety, and social isolation. It can lead to lost work and get in the way of your hobbies and recreation.

The causes of chronic fatigue syndrome are not fully understood. However, if you have chronic fatigue, you are much more sensitive to physical and mental exertion than others. This sensitivity could be due to a compromised immune system, hormonal imbalances, or viruses. Chronic fatigue is also linked to inflammation and conditions such as leaky gut.
