What is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?

Do you find that you always weak, or drained, no matter how much sleep you get? Do you otherwise feel healthy but just feel you can never seem to get enough energy to make it through the day? 

If your fatigue doesn’t seem to go away with time or a good night’s sleep, and it’s not related to another medical condition, it’s possible that you might have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. 

Dr. Robin Ridinger from Premier Health and Holistic Medicine can help bring back your zest for life.

Why are you tired all the time? 

Feeling fatigued for long periods of time isn’t normal. While everyone feels tired from time to time, if you’re consistently struggling to complete everyday activities, then it’s time to dig deeper into what’s causing your exhaustion. 

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome may make you feel like you have a flu that won’t go away, but it’s not connected to any other sickness or condition. 

People with this condition may notice that symptoms get worse after exerting a lot of energy for either a physical or mental activity. 

Stress is also a common trigger.  

Here are some signs you may have chronic fatigue.

People with chronic fatigue syndrome report a wide variety of symptoms. Some people feel tired all the time, while others experience mood swings, brain fog, muscle pains, and more.

There is currently no lab test to diagnose chronic fatigue syndrome, so medical professionals evaluate each patient’s symptoms and health history. 

Risk factors may include:

  • mold exposure
  • hormone imbalances
  • infections
  • liver and kidney congestion
  • and other environmental factors. 

Holistic doctors can work with you to make lifestyle changes that will help get your health back, looking at things like your diet, exercise, sleep and stress.
