Chronic fatigue syndrome is a debilitating disorder characterized by extreme fatigue not caused by other medical conditions. Fatigue can worsen with physical or mental activity, but does not improve with rest. Though the cause of chronic fatigue is unknown, some experts believe chronic fatigue may be a viral infection or immune system disorder, while others believe it to be related to psychological stress, trauma, or toxins. There are usually three main criteria that need to be present in order for a person to be diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome, and this criteria includes:
An individual must have symptoms ongoing for at least 6 months, after excluding other health conditions as the reason for the fatigue.
The fatigue must significantly interfere with daily activities and work.
An individual must simultaneously have 4 or more of the following 9 chronic fatigue symptoms:
- Malaise lasting more than 24 hours after slight exertion
- Flu like symptoms following activity
- Unrefreshing sleep
- Reduction in short-term memory or concentration
- Muscle pain
- Pain in joints without swelling or redness
- Headaches not common to that individual (e.g., severity, new type, pattern)
- Tender lymph nodes in the neck or armpit
- A chronic sore throat
In addition, symptoms cannot have begun before the onset of chronic fatigue.
There are other common symptoms associated with chronic fatigue that are not considered when diagnosing chronic fatigue. These symptoms include, but may not be limited to abdominal pain, alcohol intolerance, bloating, chest pain, chronic cough, diarrhea, dizziness, dry eyes or mouth, earaches, irregular heartbeat, jaw pain, morning stiffness, nausea, night sweats, psychological problems, depression, irritability, anxiety, panic attacks, shortness of breath, tingling sensations, and weight loss.
Chronic Fatigue, like adrenal fatigue, can be caused by a variety of problems from toxicity to chronic inflammation and many others. At Angel Longevity Medical Center, Dr. Mathur’s approach as an integrative functional medical clinic is one of a medical detective. She gathers all the clues of the patient’s past through extensive personal and family histories and their present lives, which can include potential toxins in a person’s environment, social life, stress level, relationships, diet, workout regimen, sleep habits, and symptoms. Armed with this information, and all appropriate lab tests she strives to uncover how and why the body is not functioning well.
