Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

Would you like to know what lab results mean? DDxHub - Differential Diagnosis Hub helps to understand and explains your blood test.

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is characterized by persistent fatigue and other associated symptoms (e.g., musculoskeletal pain, sleep disruption, memory impairments) lasting at least 6 months. The fatigue is not related to other medical conditions, disease processes, or identifiable biologic causes. Sleep, rest, and activity restriction do not improve symptoms. As you can imagine, a syndrome whose main symptom is fatigue can be pretty hard to diagnose, as there are a huge number of other possible issues that can cause it. Since there are so many other conditions that need to be excluded before a diagnosis can be made, it can often take months or years to determine the correct one. Recent studies have revealed that diagnosing CFS may be a bit easier, as it was discovered that virus segments from MLV are found in over 86% of patients.
