Everyone experiences fatigue at some point, especially if you're someone who struggles to balance your work and home life. However, if you're noticing other symptoms and a weekend sleep-in isn't helping, you may have chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, chronic fatigue syndrome is a debilitating and complex disorder characterized by profound fatigue that is not improved by bed rest and can be worsened by physical or mental activity.
Chronic fatigue syndrome causes weakness, muscle pain, memory loss or a hard time concentrating, enlarged lymph nodes and insomnia.
There is no known cure for chronic fatigue syndrome; however there are treatment options available to help reduce these symptoms. Have you ever heard of the SHINE Protocol?
