Talking about the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) which is one of the most common diseases of the 21st century.
Almost half of the world's population suffer from this disease. Many people now may ask the question - what is it and how to get rid of it. Let's try to understand.
Chronic fatigue syndrome - this is a condition where a person feels tired almost constantly, sometimes even after sleeping or resting .
Some doctors actually consider this syndrome as a disease, and someone thinks that chronic fatigue syndrome is nothing, but a psychological problem that must be treated in the sofa of a psychologist.
Faced with this problem, doctors and scientists from many countries did a serious research. In 1987, the classification of diseases appeared " chronic fatigue syndrome ". But this does not mean that mankind has struck an unknown disease. Just before it was called differently: masked depression. Da Costa 's syndrome , neurasthenia ...
At first a CFS patient may thinks that its not a problem and that he can fix it with a weekend of rest or taking a vacation.
The concern arises after the holiday when you still don’t feel better.
This is an alarm there you should stop and ask your self: Do I have CFS?
The causes of chronic fatigue syndrome lie primarily in the fact that we modern people, constantly in hurry, try to work as much as possible or earn as much money as possible and do all the chores. And if suddenly we allow ourselves a little rest, then we immediately begin to feel guilty for the fact that we spend time in vain. All this of course is good, there 's only one "but" - the human body is designed so that it can not always work , sometimes it needs to rest both physical and morally, chronic fatigue arises not only from the physical exertion , but also the emotional .
Emotional fatigue comes from the fact that modern man is forced to live permanently on some strict plan, should always be active and collected, But sooner or later people get tired always be at the center of events, get tired of urgent matters, from the responsibility.
Overloaded nervous system, trying to keep the rest of the body from the breakdown , goes to the emergency mode, appears lethargy , irritability, easily " picked up " sicknesses and flue..
It is important to notice these signals sent by the body , and to try to understand how you could put your self in such a position.
