What is chronic fatigue syndrome?

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a condition that occurs when you feel exhausted and unhappy all the time, and don't feel good even when you're rested. At first, the fatigue may be accompanied by a slight decrease in energy, but over time, some patients become unable to perform daily tasks. While chronic fatigue is a psychological problem, its effects also have physical consequences.

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a common psychological problem, but its exact cause is unknown. It typically strikes people between the ages of 30 and 50 and is much more common in women than men.

Stress is one of the main factors that increase the risk of developing the disease. In addition, poor sleep quality due to lack of sleep schedule, sleep during the day, and constant wakefulness are also factors that play a role in the development of the syndrome. People with chronic fatigue syndrome may experience muscle and joint pain for a minimum of six months, during which time fatigue and energy loss continue.

For this reason, people with chronic fatigue syndrome need psychological and physiological treatment, so it is important to consult a specialized and qualified medical doctor.
