Chronic Fatigue - Austin, TX

Chronic Fatigue - Austin, TX

If you've been experiencing severe exhaustion that's lasted longer than six months, you may be suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). If left unchecked, CFS could not only leave you at a loss for energy, it could begin to diminish your quality of life. Dealing with chronic fatigue can affect your performance at work, your time spent with family and friends, and even your enjoyment of recreational activities.

In addition to the obvious symptom from which chronic fatigue gets its name, there are other symptoms doctors look for when trying to make a diagnosis:

  • Memory loss or trouble concentrating
  • Sore throat
  • Swollen lymph nodes in the neck or armpits
  • Muscle pain
  • Joint pain with no swelling or redness
  • Headaches unlike any others you've previously experienced
  • Sleeping without feeling rested
  • Exhaustion that lasts more than 24 hours after any moderate physical activity

Causes

Doctors have yet to come to an agreement as to what causes CFS. There have been studies that could possibly link it to some viral infections, problems with the immune system, and hormone imbalances.

Doctors have noted that many of the patients suffering from CFS share three factors:

  • Age - CFS generally occurs in patients in their forties and fifties
  • Gender - Woman are more likely to report CFS than men
  • Lifestyle - People with inactive lifestyles or those dealing with weight issues are more likely to develop CFS

Getting help

Chronic Fatigue - Austin, TX

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a serious condition that can lead to bouts of depression or a desire to cut off all social interactions. That's why if you suspect you may be suffering from this affliction, it's important to seek out the help of a qualified health care professional.

The first step is to keep a log or journal of the feelings you are experiencing. Not only will this help our doctors understand your condition, but it will help us weed out any other factors that might be causing your fatigue such as sleep disorders, anemia, diabetes, hypothyroidism, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, or schizophrenia to name just a few.

Once it has been determined that you are indeed suffering from CFS, we'll develop a treatment plan to help you cope with individual symptoms while trying to manage the overall condition.

Our treatment plan will typically include numerous approaches including medications, exercise programs, and psychological counseling.
