Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, or CFS, is still a mystery to many people. Even some in the medical community is unaware of how to diagnose it, treat it, or inform people about it. CFS can resemble other illnesses, including mononucleosis, lupus, fibromyalgia, chronic Lyme disease, and multiple sclerosis. That's why it's especially important to differentiate other possible diseases from CFS.

Get informed

CFS can be isolating and debilitating. CFS can strike people of any age, ethnic origin, or socioeconomic bracket. Women seem to be at a greater risk of developing CFS than men. And people in their 40s and 50s are more likely to get CFS, but it is found in people of all ages, including children.
