Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), and post-viral fatigue syndrome (PVTS) can have devastating effects on the sufferer.
We group them all under the collective name of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and they are very similar. The main symptom is persistent fatigue. They affect everyday life and the symptoms don’t disappear or lessen with sleep or rest.
Most people with CFS describe this fatigue as overwhelming. They say it is a different type of tiredness from that which they have experienced before.
As a non-sufferer, you might remember how exhausted you felt when you were a new parent or when you were working two or three jobs. Well, the fatigue that CFS sufferers feel is very different from that.
Interestingly exercising can make symptoms worse. The effect of this payback after exercise is sometimes delayed. For example, if you were to play a game of sport, the resulting fatigue may not develop until a few hours afterwards or even the next day.
People with severe CFS are likely to be unable to do any activities themselves. Or they might only be able to carry out simple daily tasks, such as brushing their teeth. They’re sometimes confined to their bed and often feel they are unable to leave their house.
Due to the debilitating nature of CFS, it tends to cause other symptoms and problems as well, such as
muscle and joint pain, headaches, and problems with memory. It can also cause irritable bowel syndrome, sleeping problems, depression, and anxiety. In some cases, sufferers have balance problems and specific food intolerances.
