Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Vs Chronic Fatigue by anamaulida


									<div class="KonaBody">
        <p>Fatigue is an ongoing part of life for many individuals
today. Lack of sleep for busy parents, students, and others trying to
find ways to fit all of their "to do's" into one twenty four hour period
is simply something that modern man learns to deal with. However, for
some people, fatigue cannot be remedied by a good night's
sleep.<br><br>Chronic fatigue can be an early warning sign that something
has gone awry with one or more bodily systems. Diseases and disorders
such as depression, diabetes, hypothyroidism, and even certain cancers
count fatigue as a primary symptom. For individuals who suffer from one
of these diseases, fatigue is a result of the disease or disorder -
fatigue is caused by the disease. For an even smaller group of
individuals, chronic fatigue is an illness unto itself.<br><br>Unlike
Chronic Fatigue, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) IS the illness, not
merely a symptom. Although characterized by, and having extreme fatigue
as its hallmark symptom, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome includes many other
frustrating symptoms. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome sufferers find that they
can include multiple mysterious symptoms such as flu-like symptoms and
unexplained brain fog among their woes. For some individuals, the
symptoms become incredibly disabling. Many individuals cannot function
normally - at least for a period of time.<br><br>Because the symptoms of
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome are non-specific, medical professionals have
difficulty diagnosing the illness. Even more frustrating for sufferers,
many medical professionals continue to hold the belief that Chronic
Fatigue Syndrome is not a valid illness, but is a psychosomatic disorder
instead. Even with this built in prejudice, it is still wise for an
individual who believes he or she suffers from CFS to undergo a complete
medical examination to rule out one of the underlying medical conditions
mentioned above before receiving treatment for CFS. Â <br><br>Individuals
who suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome are not merely depressed,
overtired, or crazy. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a valid medical
illness. Research into the causes, and ultimately cure, of CFS is still
in its infancy, but medical professionals have determined that CFS does
in fact exist and that sufferers may be able to find relief - if not yet
a cure. With continued research and medical intervention, CFS sufferers
may one day realize a life without symptoms.<br></p>        <!--
