Chronic fatigue

What is chronic fatigue?

Chronic fatigue is a complex medical condition characterized by extreme tiredness that lasts 6 months or longer and that can't be explained by an underlying medical condition. People with chronic fatigue feel debilitated by overwhelming exhaustion that is not improved by rest and is much more severe than just being tired from lack of sleep or overwork.

The key defining symptoms of chronic fatigue include:

Researchers aren't sure what causes chronic fatigue, but some contributing factors may include viral infections, immune system abnormalities, stress, and genetic predisposition.

If you struggle with chronic tiredness and multiple symptoms above that obstruct your ability to function, I recommend getting evaluated by a doctor specializing functional and integrative medicine. They can help uncover potential causes through advanced testing and provide tailored treatment plans.

For example, at Vitality Renewal Clinic we use cutting-edge diagnostic testing to assess hormone, nutrient, and viral profiles in chronic fatigue patients. We often find imbalances that when addressed, can dramatically improve energy levels. Our physicians develop customized, science-based protocols involving nutrition plans, vitamin IV therapies, bioidentical hormones, targeted supplements, and detoxification to reduce fatigue and restore health from a root cause level.

I hope this overview gave you a better understanding of chronic fatigue syndrome. Please let me know if you have any other questions!
