Symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome You Should Know

Upper cervical care in Redwood City has gained popularity among patients because of the great results it brings for people with chronic fatigue syndrome.

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a condition that causes extreme exhaustion heightened by physical and mental activities. For no reason, the body experiences constant fatigue that no amount of rest or sleep can ease. 

It is often mistaken as fibromyalgia as the two disorders share some similarities. Even doctors themselves often make a misdiagnosis, inaccurately identifying one condition as the other. Although they have resemblances, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia are not one and the same. 

At the moment, no single test can deny nor confirm the existence of chronic fatigue syndrome. Hence, doctors have to rule out other disorders with similar traits through different examinations before they give a final diagnosis. 

Signs and Symptoms That You May Have Chronic Fatigue

The list of symptoms below is the basis for the doctors when they come up with a diagnosis. Patients should experience or have at least four of the criteria below during a six-month period.

On the other hand, those in their childhood or teenage years can get a chronic fatigue diagnosis if they have the symptoms for at least three months. 

  • Waking up tired
  • Reduced activity due to extreme fatigue
  • Muscle pain 
  • Joint pain 
  • Visual problems or eye pain
  • Chills or night sweats
  • Brain fog
  • Allergies
  • Frequent sore throats
  • Abnormal, severe headaches
  • Dizziness, vertigo, or disequilibrium
  • Loss of memory or problems focusing
  • Bowel and bladder issues such as diarrhea, IBS, abdominal pain, or bloating
  • Emotional issues including irritability, panic attacks, mood swings, anxiety or depression

The Possible Cause of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome 

Several studies have linked chronic fatigue to changes in cortisol levels. Cortisol is a hormone that regulates the immune functions in the body. Researchers found that cortisol is low in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome. Unknown by many, low cortisol levels can be due to a misalignment in the upper neck vertebrae, which disrupts the overall function of the central nervous system.
