What is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?

Fatigue is a common issue on a day to day basis. We have all had that night of poor sleep with the miserable day that follows. The problem is when does it become a medical issue? When do you go from a day of being very tired to an actual illness?

It is an issue when it interrupts your routine and daily life. Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) are medical illnesses that share many common features. Everyday fatigue may exhibit many of the same features and may actually be an undiagnosed FMS or CFS. I have had patients that were so tired that they couldn’t get off the couch for months on end. Other patients of mine had to take a nap during lunch time work break and then go home after work and go to bed right away.

Symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome & How We Can Help

  • fatigue
  • non-refreshing sleep
  • poor exercise tolerance
  • brain fog
  • poor concentration
  • poor stress tolerance
  • depression
  • anxiety
  • muscle aches
  • poor motivation & more

Fortunately, there has been much progress made in the diagnosis and treatment of CFS and FMS since they were initially formalized as illnesses. It is now theorized to be a dysfunction of the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Thyroid-Adrenal-Gonadal Axis.

Say what?

This simply means that your brain has blown a fuse and is not talking very well to your body and not regulating your bodily functions. The body dysfunctions can leave you with brain fog, poor sleep, fatigue, muscle aches, poor motivation, low moods and more.

These bodily dysfunctions can worsen over time due to the lack of proper regulation and the patient finds themselves in a downward spiral, getting sicker and sicker, with no sign of relief.

The big problem is how can you get better, and who cares what the theories about the illness are if you are starting to feel better?

If you feel good, you don’t care what Axis is involved. This is where we come in. In our practice, we have been successfully treating FMS, CFS, and even everyday fatigue for quite some time, well over fifteen years.
