There are so many things in our everyday life that can wear us down. If you have chronic fatigue syndrome, these things are even more difficult to deal with. People struggling with chronic fatigue are always feeling tired even after getting enough rest and sleep.
Chronic fatigue syndrome is a condition that can lead to several symptoms, including a lack of energy and feeling tired and weak. These symptoms may not be serious but they can affect the patient’s quality of life. Therefore, medical help should be sought if these symptoms are experienced. Here are some of the most common signs and symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome.
1. Post Exertional Malaise
People who do not exercise are more likely to become physically weaker compared to those who exercise. Nevertheless, some people who are not exercising will not necessarily feel week compared to others. For patients with chronic fatigue syndrome, they find themselves feeling weak often and it can get so severe that they lack the energy to carry out their daily routines.
This symptom is called Post Exertional Malaise (PEM). It is sometimes associated with pain, swollen lymph nodes, and sore throat. The symptom is usually a result of mental or physical exertion that will last for days or weeks in some cases.
