What is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Its Symptoms? December 27, 2018

What is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Its Symptoms?, North Hempstead, New York

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a condition that affects those experiencing high levels of stress for a long time. While immunology doctors and scientists are still researching the condition, there is not an individual diagnostic test that can definitively diagnose it. Below is an explanation of what scientists do know about this challenging and at times debilitating condition.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Long-term stress can create an imbalance in the body’s endocrine system, which affects the thyroid and adrenal glands that secrete important hormones associated with energy levels. When diagnosing the condition, an immunology specialist or physician will typically test for other diseases such as Lyme disease, thyroid conditions, or mononucleosis. If nothing emerges after testing for other diseases with related symptoms, then chronic fatigue syndrome may be the culprit. 

The immunology specialist will recommend treatments that restore balance to the body’s immune system, including reducing inflammation, balancing hormone levels, and conducting additional specialized tests that look for dysfunction in cell mitochondria. The right treatment will vary by each patient and requires a customized approach for the best results.

Symptoms to Look Out For

immunologyPatients with chronic fatigue syndrome feel exhausted nearly all the time, regardless how of how much sleep they get. They may even look well rested and not have the health problems associated with lack of sleep, yet are unable to participate in their normal activities. Simply making it through a walk without stopping to rest, or making it through the day without taking a nap can prove to be a serious and insurmountable challenge.
