*Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

"CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME - CFS"

CFS is a disease of the 20‑21st centuries.

Definition: CFS is the considered "diagnosis" if you have been tired for more than 6 months, and there is no other obvious medical disorder present.

That's a bit like saying the sky has been blue for six months, so there has to a drought happening.

CFS has many causes. The trick is to pick the right one. Since there is often many causes in the same patient, the more important trick is to pick the correct reasons and then to treat them in the correct order.

Sub-types of CFS

Type One has the worst anxiety and depression, poor sleep patterns and high pain levels;

Type Two is typified by exhaustion, and joint and muscle pain following exercise;

Type Three is the mildest form of the disease.

Type Four have moderate levels of body pain and sleep problems,

Type Five sufferers have stomach complaints and severe muscle weakness.

Type Six mainly experience fatigue, while type seven sufferers had the most severe symptoms, including pain, swollen glands and headaches
