Always Tired? Here’s What You Need to Know About Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
One possible cause of fatigue is a medically diagnosable condition – Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) or Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME). CFS been reported to affect up to 3% of population in certain countries and can be debilitating. But what is CFS and what can you do to manage it?

CFS, is a disabling and complex long-term condition with a wide range of symptoms. The most common symptom is extreme tiredness. CFS affects all ages, gender, ethnicity, and socio-economic groups but it’s more common in women. CFS is a poorly understood disorder that has no cure to date – the only solution is to minimise the severity of the symptoms.

A CFS patient experiences profound fatigue to the extent of not being able to perform daily activities. At times, CFS may confine them to bed. People with CFS have overwhelming fatigue that is not improved by rest. This fatigue is aggravated by physical and mental activities that other healthy individual can ordinarily perform with ease.

The exact cause of CFS is not known by doctors and medical practitioners alike. While some attribute CFS to genetic issues, hormonal imbalances, stress, sickness, or viral infection, others believe that the symptoms are simply physical manifestations of the patient’s psychological state. The lack of definitive answers has meant that many sufferers of CFS have been unable to receive the medical help and advice that they so desperately need. 

Without proper treatment, CFS can lead to further physical and psychological complications such as depression, sleeplessness, difficulties concentrating and short-term memory. 

Symptoms of CFS
While the main symptom of CFS is extreme, prolonged fatigue that is not relieved by rest, this condition can impact your body in a variety of ways but not limited to: 

  • Persistent headache
  • Unrefreshed sleep
  • Memory and concentration impairment
  • Tender lymph nodes
  • Muscle pain or aches
  • Chills or night sweats
  • Fast, irregular heartbeats (heart palpitations) 
  • Mental health problems such as stress, depression, and anxiety 

The symptoms for CFS can defer from one person to another. However, if one suffer from any of these symptoms persistently in addition to extreme fatigue, despite getting sufficient rest, it is advisable to seek medical advice from a doctor. After all, a proper diagnosis will allow one to get proper help in managing their condition.

Long Covid and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
While many mysteries remain around CFS, but some might have heard of long-Covid 2 years into the pandemic. Recovered Covid-19 patients have reported a variety of symptoms other than breathlessness, including brain fog, fatigue, wheezing, palpitation, and persistent cough. This can last for weeks or months after testing negative for the virus. About one in 10 people report some symptoms up to six months after contracting Covid-19, based on data that was published in 2021.

People who suffer from long-Covid, share similar symptoms commonly associated with CFS. However, this linkage between Covid-19 and CFS sparks hope. As medical researchers seek for a cure for long-Covid, it is likely that developments made in this area can similarly benefit patients with CFS. 

Natural Remedies to Relieve Symptoms of CFS or Long Covid
Currently, the treatment for both long-Covid and CFS focus on minimising the severity of the symptoms. Apart from lifestyle changes like keeping a healthy diet and sufficient sleep, one can look into Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to help them cope with the conditions.
