Fatigue Q & A

What is chronic fatigue syndrome?

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a serious bodywide illness that causes symptoms of exhaustion as well as other issues. With chronic fatigue syndrome, feeling tired is more than just the normal tiredness that you’d expect after a heavy workout. It causes exhaustion that’s out-of-proportion with the activity. 

Also, chronic fatigue syndrome can cause extreme tiredness following activities that didn’t previously wear you out. For example, attending a social event may be so draining that it could leave a chronic fatigue syndrome sufferer in bed for days. 

You may also experience other symptoms, including:

  • Sleep doesn’t feel refreshing
  • Persistent headaches
  • Joint pain
  • Muscle tenderness
  • Frequent sore throat 
  • Swollen lymph nodes in the neck
  • Poor overall cognitive function
  • Forgetfulness
  • Memory loss
  • Dizzy spells
  • Racing heart or irregular heartbeat

Chronic fatigue syndrome may worsen until you’re no longer able to live a normal life, so it’s important to seek diagnosis and care at BioLounge if you suspect a problem.

What causes chronic fatigue syndrome?

BioLounge performs comprehensive diagnostic testing to find the underlying cause of chronic fatigue syndrome. Some of the most common causes can include immune system issues, hormonal imbalances, and poor gut health. In some cases, several different problems can come together to contribute to chronic fatigue syndrome.

Your comprehensive testing typically includes nutritional analysis, genetic testing, blood tests, urinalysis, stool testing, glucose monitoring, and other tests. These tests allow your experienced providers to isolate the exact reasons for your chronic fatigue, so they can plan your treatment.
