Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Treatment Cambridge
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is long-term tiredness (fatigue) that does not go away with sleep, or rest, and affects everyday life.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is also known as ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis). Myalgia is muscle pain and encephalomyelitis is inflammation of the brain and spinal cord. ME is a commonly used term, although it can be thought to be too specific to cover all the symptoms.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is the term that is often used to describe long-term tiredness by GPs and medical professionals. This is because in the majority of cases, the main symptom is chronic fatigue. This is usually the preferred term, rather than ME. In Chronic Fatigue Syndrome there is little evidence that inflammation of the brain and spinal cord occurs.
ME is often the preferred term of people who have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. This is due to the fact that they feel fatigue is too general and does not reflect the severity and the different types of fatigue. In addition, it is felt that even though fatigue may occur in most cases, it is not the main or only symptom sufferers experience.
It is estimated that 150,000 people in the UK have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Anyone can get Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, although it is more common in women than men. It usually develops in the early twenties to mid-forties but children can also be affected, most commonly between the ages of 13-15
