 A vaguely defined yet startlingly widespread disease with almost no uniform cause, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome can affect almost anyone. What is surreal about chronic fatigue syndrome is that it’s not only underplayed, it is also startlingly relatable.  If you are feeling habitually tired despite taking the time to get well-rested, you may have this syndrome.

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is typically defined as having prolonged fatigue despite adequate rest. For example, let’s say you have slept eight hours every night this week and still feel like you have been in a waking slumber the whole time, it is safe to assume that you at least know someone who has gone through this if you haven’t yourself. Well some people have more severe cases of CFS, in fact the clinical requirement to be diagnosed with this disease is an astonishing six months of experiencing memory problems, joint pains, headaches, or issues sleeping.

We have a disease of no known origin that have symptoms relatable enough that anyone can project themselves onto the condition, the surefire way to circumvent the issue of erroneous self-diagnosis is to follow the clinician’s guidelines for diagnosing CFS. There is no medicinal cure for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, but physical therapy has been shown to assist with the disease.
