Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome aka myalgic encephalomyelitis is a disorder caused due to extreme fatigue. Just rest cannot help a person recover from this problem. It is a long-term disorder with a varied range of symptoms. As the name suggests, the common symptom is exhaustion, tiredness and difficulty in carrying out daily activities.

People in the age group from 40-60 can get affected by this disorder. The main reason behind this disorder is uncertain and still not specifically known. Generally, women are diagnosed with this syndrome more often than men. This disorder can lead to depression and inability to socialize, if not treated on time.
