Chronic fatigue is a condition that affects we go about normal, daily activities. It’s difficult to understand exactly what causes this condition, but for most people, chronic fatigue shows after a viral illness. It has also been seen to follow a physical or emotional traumatizing event. It’s a condition that affects many and symptoms can vary.
Common symptoms include:
- Extreme physical fatigue
- Extreme mental fatigue
- Feeling unwell after being active
- Sleep problems
- Muscle pain
- Joint pain
- Problems concentrating
- Sensitive to light, noise, or emotions
- Muscle weakness
There can also be combinations of lightheadedness and dizziness when being active, or having shortness of breath, when someone is suffering from chronic fatigue. Weight and appetite changes can also go into effect. Depression is often a symptom that is common with this condition and can make all the other symptoms worse.
Chronic fatigue cannot be completely cured, but the symptoms can be eased with different kinds of treatments. Traditional approaches recommend an array of medications, like anti-depressants, that can suppress some of the symptoms. At Stem Cell International, we don’t agree with this principle. Too often we see patients who underwent treatments that helped their condition in the short-term but had no long-term affect to their issues.
