Atlanta Chronic Fatigue Treatment
Chronic fatigue syndrome, as the name suggests, is not a disease but a syndrome and refers to severe and continuous tiredness. This syndrome does not have any known causes and can persist for more than 6 months which can cause cognitive difficulties in patients. The main symptoms for this are a severe form of fatigue (which lasts for more than 6 months), short term memory loss, problems with concentration, sore throat, muscle pain, joint pain and swelling. People suffering with this syndrome have problems performing their normal daily activities which can lead to severe depression.
The main symptoms which doctors use to confirm chronic fatigue are:
- Cognitive difficulties
- Post-exertional fatigue
When a person suffers from these symptoms and they find it difficult to perform his/her daily routine then it is best that they consult a doctor. Some specific laboratory tests can be conducted to confirm the presence of the syndrome. These tests include blood sampling, antibody tests, CT scans and MRIs.
Treatments for Chronic Fatigue:
There are many treatments available for chronic fatigue syndrome. Self care at home is very necessary along with the medications given by the doctor. People suffering from CFS have to be very careful and should avoid excessive physical stress and emotional stress. A very regular and manageable daily routine needs to be followed. Usage of alcohol and caffeine has to be reduced completely. Social isolation should be completely avoided. A healthy life style, healthy food, good habits, good company is very necessary to cure any disease.
