Some people unintentionally mope around day after day, depressed, without energy and lacking capacity to do a good day’s work. More often than not they feel tired after a good night’s sleep.
This type of person is suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome. They don’t necessarily know that’s their problem… they may think they are suffering from nervousness.
The Centers for Disease Control estimate that more than one million Americans suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome.
A serious problem for persons suffering from chronic fatigue are the creeping side effects of the disorder. In addition to ongoing general intense fatigue, patients with chronic fatigue syndrome usually show signs of memory loss, enlarged lymph nodes in the armpits or neck, a sore throat, unexplained muscle pain, headaches which are often severe, joint pain with no redness or swelling, sleep that does not create a feeling of restoration, and extreme exhaustion for more than an entire day, following mental or physical activity.
And, of course, as their condition deteriorates, so does their bodily resistance to disease. Chronic fatigue, left untreated, could well be considered a one way street to severe cases of insomnia and nervous breakdown.
How is chronic fatigue relieved?
The first step is to relieve the primary disorder. Proper bodily functions must be restored. Vital nerve energy must be allowed to flow freely through the body.
That life is worth living and does have to be a pipe-dream. Chronic fatigue syndrome need corrective attention.
