Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is a debilitating disorder causing profound fatigue which does not get better with proper bed rest. This problem continues for more than six months and its symptoms worsen while doing physical and mental work. The long lasting tiredness limits the person’s capacity to perform his\her daily chores. Besides continuous fatigue, people having this chronic disorder face problems like poor memory; weakness and body ache which prevents them from performing normally at home or at work thus making them vulnerable to depression. Middle aged women are the one who are most prone to this disease. There is no medication available for alleviating the syndrome completely however it could be cured by treating its symptoms.
Other than unremitting fatigue and weakness, other symptoms are
- Muscle pain
- Impaired memory

- Poor concentration

The onset of the disease could be linked to an infection affecting body’s immune system. It can even occur in association with acute disorders and infections like diarrhea, bronchitis, Malaria, Pneumonia, Typhoid, Chicken pox etc. One possible cause is an inflammation caused in the nervous system.
Person’s age, genetics, illness and continuous stress are some factors which can contribute to its causes.
