Chronic Fatigue Syndrome are you tired all the time?

During my service to our country many years ago, I had a buddy that was diagnosed with this CFS. His regular cure for this was a couple of shots of Vodka (Stolies), my out look on this was it just made him more tired and grumpy. IMO in retrospect I wish he had this information at the time it would probably would have helped him a lot more than the vodka. I also know that a person very close to me will benefit from this information as well, she has a constant “I’m tired syndrome” , or feels like she is coming down with the flu or bug all the time. CFS is a flu-like condition that zappes or drains your energy, and this can last for years

Directly from the CDC (Centers For Disease Control and Prevention), “studies by the CDC and others have shown that between 1 and 4 million Americans suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) “

“CFS is a complicated disorder characterized by extreme fatigue that doesn’t improve with bed rest and may worsen with physical or mental activity.” Quoting from the Mayo Clinic.

“Women are diagnosed with CFS far more often than men are. However, it is unclear weather CFS affects women more frequently or if women report it more often than men do.”

Whether or not this is either misdiagnosed or if it is a mental of physical ailment this should help. Click the link see if it helps.
