Syndrome (CFS) is described as a severe, debilitating fatigue, lasting at
least six months (of new and definite onset), associated with at least four
of the following symptoms: impaired memory or concentration, sore throat,
lymphadenopathy, muscle pains, joint pains, new headaches, unrefreshing
sleep, and post-exertion malaise. Other medical and psychiatric conditions
that can produce fatigue should be ruled out, including Lyme's disease.
After demanding physical exercise, chronic fatigue syndrome patients show
impaired cognitive processing.
Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS) is a pain disorder associated with multiple
tender points, sleep disturbances (insomnia and non-restorative sleep),
and fatigue. Hypothalamic dysfunction, immune dysfunction, and nutritional
inadequacies can all cause or perpetuate this sometimes severe syndrome.
