This is an excellent article because many times doctors dismiss common, undifferentiated symptoms as trivial or all in the patient's head.

The suggestion that extreme fatigue persisting for at least a month could be chronic fatigue syndrome, also known as myalgic encephalomyelitis, (ME/CFS) is a good one. To be even more precise in order to be diagnosed with ME/CFS the patient must have post exertional exhaustion lasting 24 hours or more and unrelieved by rest. ME/CFS patients need not run a marathon for this specific form of fatigue. Doing the dishes or walking the dog can bring it on.

ME/CFS is far more than just post exertional exhaustion unrelieved by rest. It must be part of a specific pattern that includes substantial memory and concentration problems as well. Other parts of the necessary pattern of symptoms may include muscle aches, sore throat, swollen lymph glands, headaches of a new type, pattern, or severity and unrefreshing sleep.

Cancer if caught soon enough can be treated and possibly cured. There is no cure for ME/CFS and no treatments that work for all patients.

We value and respect our HERWriters' experiences, but everyone is different. Many of our writers are speaking from personal experience, and what's worked for them may not work for you. Their articles are not a substitute for medical advice, although we hope you can gain knowledge from their insight.
