Overview of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)
Chronic fatigue syndrome is a functional diagnosis, for which conventional medicine has identified no causative mechanism; its cause may be multifactorial, with multiple contributing factors.
Although chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia appear to share many of the same symptoms and causative factors, they appear to be distinct disorders with different treatments. Hence, careful differential diagnosis based on history, signs, and symptoms is necessary for effective treatment [Liptan2016].
It is also possible that a patient may present with diagnoses of both fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Complimentary and alternative treatments for chronic fatigue syndrome that are considered below include:
- Immune System Balancing
- Low Dose Naltrexone
- Neuro-Gen High Performance Neuromodulation (HPN)
