Do you wake up and still feel tired in the morning? Are you tired but have trouble sleeping yet you can’t figure out why you are so tired all the time? You may be suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Characterized by severe fatigue that last for six months or more, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome limits a person’s ability to do ordinary daily activities and enjoy life.
In addition to long-lasting fatigue, a person with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome may have at least four of these additional symptoms:
- difficulties with memory and concentration
- persistent muscle pain
- joint pain (without redness or swelling)
- tender lymph nodes in the neck or armpit
- sore throat
Suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome can be extremely frustrating for patients and many times, the treatment involves sleeping pills or antidepressants, leading patients on a seemingly never-ending cycle of different medications, though often not leading to the relief that the patient needs.
If you are suffering from extreme malaise, think back to when you had energy and ask yourself what has changed. While a diagnosis may be difficult, one thing is for sure and that is that drug therapies do not solve the root of the problem or bring you back to the state where you felt the best. Drugs simply control or mask the symptoms.
So what is the solution? The best cause of action is to address the symptoms at their root cause by looking into the factors that cause fatigue and other problems. Restoring balance to the body and addressing things like repairing of neurological imbalances, restoring nutritional deficiencies and eliminating toxins are all imperative when looking to address the underlying cause of things like Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
As such, it makes sense to see a doctor who specializes in the brain’s connection to the central nervous system and restoring balance to the entire body through brain-based care.
