Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Information
As the name Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) implies, one of the hallmark symptoms of this illness is fatigue, but it is not the kind of fatigue one experiences after a busy day, mild exertion, a sleepless night or a single, stressful event.
It is a severe, incapacitating fatigue that is not improved by bed rest. It may worsen with physical or mental activity. It is an all-encompassing, life-altering fatigue that results in a dramatic decline in the patient’s health, activity level and stamina. It dramatically changes his or her whole existence!
Hopefully, if you’re here to inquire about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), most likely you believe that CFS exists, you suspect that you and/or someone you care about has it and you’re officially worried. You need real help. However, because of CFS’s complicated and varied nature, it’s common for people to misunderstand the illness and the people who suffer with it. (Even doctors.)

We make no attempt to be the authoritative end-all, information source. They are available simply by doing a Google search on the Internet.

Note: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is also known as Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome or CFIDS in the United States. It is often referred to Myalgic Encephalomyelitis or ME in other countries. There is a movement to change the name of the illness and make it more uniform. ME/CFS is being used in some publications. For simplicity sake at Get Well Health, most of time we will refer to it as CFS.
