Feeling tired and exhausted after a long day at work or home is understood but if the exhaustion does not go away even with adequate rest, what could be wrong? Also known as Systemic Exertion Intolerance Disease (SEID) or myalgic encephalomyelitis is nothing but Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in a lay man’s language. It is a complicated disorder characterized by extreme fatigue that refuses to go away with rest and cannot be explained by any underlying medical condition. Why are we calling this a complicated condition? The reason is that it produces symptoms similar to other illnesses, challenging to diagnose and there are no tests for it. This condition can affect anyone and is most common among women in their 40s and 50s.
Reason for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
There is no exact reason for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, but research has shown some contributing factors to this disease. Some people are born with more chances of developing this disease and can be triggered by a combination of the factors below:
- Weak immune system– people with the impaired immune system are also more prone to CFS.
- Stress– One of the major causes of illnesses in our body is to be blamed on high levels of stress owing to different facets of life.
- Hormonal imbalances– the levels of hormones produced by the hypothalamus, adrenal or pituitary glands are quite abnormal in individuals suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome.
- Certain strains of viruses– few individuals develop CFS after recovering from a bout of viral infection. Some of the suspicious strains of microorganisms are Epstein-Barr virus, human herpesvirus-6 rubella, Ross River virus mouse leukemia virus.
How do You Know You Are Suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?
Individuals suffering from CFS seem to be more hypersensitive to reasonable amounts of any form of physical activity. Women are more prone to be diagnosed with Chronic fatigue syndrome as compared to men Individuals after the age of 40s and 50s are more likely to suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Social isolation, depression, restrictions of ways of life and frequent absence from work can be some of the complications of this syndrome. There are cycles of feeling worse and then better experienced by some individuals suffering from CFS. At times, the symptoms may disappear completely which is called remission, just for the relapse to take place. This cycle of remission and relapse can make it difficult to manage the symptoms.
The diagnosis of CFS is very tricky as there are no lab tests to screen for the same and most of its symptoms are very similar to many other diseases too. To be diagnosed, the doctor needs to review the full medical history of the patient ruling out any other cause of fatigue. The main line of treatment for CFS is lifestyle management like:
- Creating a sleep routine wherein the patient is sleeping and waking up at the same time every day.
- No emotional and physical stress.
- Try to pace the activities so that one does not overexert themselves and worsen the symptoms of CFS.
