Control Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) can happen over time or come on suddenly. People who get CFS over time get more and more tired over weeks or months. People who get CFS suddenly feel fine one day and then feel extremely tired the next. A person with CFS may have muscle pain, trouble focusing, or insomnia (not being able to sleep). The extreme tiredness may come and go. In some cases the extreme tiredness never goes away. The extreme tiredness must go on for at least 6 months before a diagnosis of CFS can be made.

Dr. Sushila Kataria, internal consultant with Medanta Medicity says, “I see women in twenties coming to me seeking consultation for chronic fatigue conditions. They seem to be tired all the time. Stress is one of the factors causing extreme fatigue and other factors can be anaemia, low blood pressure, hypothyroidism and allergies.

What should you do
There is no hard and fast treatment for chronic fatigue but certain lifestyle changes can help, says Dr Kataria.

  • Begin with gentle, regular exercises which can initiate feelings of well being. Learn ways to adapt to stress. Do meditation to get away with the clutter of thoughts.
  • Eat well and it is a good idea to begin multivitamin supplements. Try supplementing your body with omega 3 fatty acids.
  •   Acupuncture, massage, stretching, yoga, and tai chi have been helpful for many people with CFS.

However some people say their CFS symptoms may get better with complementary or alternative treatments, such as massage, acupuncture, chiropractic care, yoga, stretching, or self-hypnosis. Keep in mind that many alternative treatments, dietary supplements, and herbal remedies claim to cure CFS, but they might do more harm than good. So better talk to your doctor before seeing someone else for treatment or before trying alternative therapies.
