For some people, fatigue is so severe that up to a 50% reduction in daily activities becomes their new “normal.” Chronic fatigue causes multiple symptoms that include:

  • Exhaustion
  • Memory loss
  • Lack of concentration
  • Engorged lymph nodes
  • Muscle/joint pain 
  • Headache

Chronic fatigue syndrome affects everyone, regardless of age. However, research has shown that patients over 40 are at greater risk than their younger counterparts, with most cases reported in a person’s 40s and 50s. Research continues to be ongoing in nailing down the causes of chronic fatigue, with some promising insights into the causes. 

Prevailing theories for the cause are:

  • Viral infections: Some viruses such as Epstein Barr, human herpesvirus 6, and others have shown a strong likelihood of causing chronic fatigue syndrome, but has not been conclusively proven.
  • Compromised immune system: Some patients with chronic fatigue have presented with compromised immune systems. However, the science remains unclear if the altered immune system causes the disorder or is just a side effect. The tricky part of this possibility is that every person’s immune response works slightly differently from another person leading to contradictory results.
  • Hormonal imbalances: While the full significance is unknown, the impact a hormonal imbalance has on the condition has been noted due to several hormonal disorders present in patients with chronic fatigue. Researchers are still working on the exact relationship between the two.

Treatment is multidisciplinary in nature. A few markers in your body indicate causality for chronic fatigue, and attempts to remedy those deficiencies have shown some promising benefits but are still under research. 

Fortunately, many options are available to manage your symptoms, like medicines for headaches and pain. However, specific treatments can address the potential causes as opposed to just managing the symptoms. Patients suffering from compromised immune systems or hormone imbalances often suffer the loss of energy, fatigue, and cognition, which are Chronic Fatigue symptoms. Natural regenerative treatments can address these conditions, such as MIC Injections, IV Nutrient Therapy, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, and more.
