Understanding How To Spot Chronic Fatigue Symptoms

By Trevor Johnson

Feeling tired is nothing strange or uncommon; we all lead lives which can take up all our energy. Chronic fatigue syndrome is best described as constant tiredness. Chronic fatigue symptoms are similar in character to high blood pressure and mild influenza so it may not be initially recognised by a medical specialist.

Chronic fatigue syndrome can persist for many months or even years. No matter how much rest or sleep you get you will still feel tired. There can be mild or severe headaches, nausea, muscle cramps and other side effects of this condition. It can cause individuals to take time off their job or school and feel anxious and stressed.

Also, it is now believed that chronic fatigue may have been responsible for many road fatalities. If you fall asleep when driving then the consequences are often deadly.

Many people find that a change in diet and lifestyle can prevent tiredness. If you have tried altering your intake of caffeine, vitamins, and nutrients and still feel sleepy during most days then it may be necessary to visit a doctor. There are holistic approaches and prescription drugs that can be given to lesson some of the chronic fatigue symptoms.

Medical specialists are still unsure of the exact cause of chronic fatigue syndrome and because of this there is no actual cure. The methods and medications that are given can only be used to treat the symptoms. But investigations are still continuing and there are also a number of natural ways to alleviate the symptoms.

If you have any pains or discomfort over a period of time then you will realise that there is something wrong. It can take some time for us to get concerned enough to visit our local health clinic. Chronic fatigue syndrome will gradually get worse over the months and years so it is best to get advice sooner rather than later. - 30540
