About Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Every one of us gets tired. But when people feel devoid of energy as unplugged from their power supply, this might be the sign of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). The early sign is a strong and noticeable fatigue that comes on suddenly and never stops. It feels like having gone without rest, even after getting a full night’s sleep.

Inability to concentrate, muscle weakness, joint aches, cognitive impairment, ongoing headaches of varying degrees are chronic fatigue symptoms that persist during six or more consecutive months of illness.
