While the exact cause of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is unknown, the symptoms are debilitating and can make daily life feel like an uphill battle.Symptoms include fatigue, loss of memory or concentration, sore throat, enlarged lymph nodes in your neck or armpits, unexplained muscle or joint pain, headaches, and unrestful sleep. Signs of chronic fatigue often include extreme tiredness that can occur following light movement, exercise or even after a long night’s sleep.
While there is no test to confirm a diagnosis of chronic fatigue syndrome, the symptoms often point to a range or mix of health issues caused by a variety of imbalances that have long been ignored. Most practitioners believe that a combination of stress to the body including food allergies and other chronic issues such as adrenal dysfunction or leaky gut syndrome may be the culprit. A poor diet, a dormant infection, hormone imbalances, exposure to environmental toxins or even intense psychological stress are other potential causes of chronic fatigue.
According to an Institute of Medicine (IOM), an estimated 836,000 to 2.5 million Americans suffer from ME/CFS, but most of them have not been diagnosed and the numbers are growing affecting men, women and children of all races and ethnicities.
