What is chronic fatigue syndrome?
There are many people today who are struggling with CFS or chronic fatigue syndrome. It is also sometimes referred to as ME or myalgic encephalomyelitis. This is a medical condition which can result in a whole lot of negative symptoms. In most cases, people who are suffering from this syndrome will experience extreme fatigue. They will find it difficult to manage the situation and this might have a detrimental impact on a person’s quality of life. There are unfortunately very few conventional treatment methods which are really effective. And this is exactly why an increasing number of people suffering from CFS is now becoming interested in medical marijuana. The important question naturally will be whether cannabis will indeed be a suitable cure for chronic fatigue or will this prove to be another misconception as far as alternative medicine is concerned. We are in the fortunate position that there is an incredible amount of information available on just about any topic imaginable. There are now many pharmacies that are willing and able to sell CBD products to people.
How will CFS affect people?
There is still no known cure for CFS and it still has to be discovered what exactly is causing CFS. There are suspicions that it could be triggered by a range of factors such as bacterial or viral infections. It might also be the result of hormonal imbalance. The problem might also be with the immune system. It is quite possible that it could be due to extreme stress or emotional trauma. There are also some researchers who are investigating the possibility that CFS may be due to genetic factors. It was actually found that CFS is more dominant in certain families than in others. Females are more likely to suffer from CFS than men. CFS is also more dominant between the ages of 25 and 45. There are many symptoms associated with CFS. On some days they will be more apparent than on others. It can also occasionally happen that people who are suffering from CFS could have setbacks or relapses. When this happens the symptoms may become significantly worse for a certain time. Some of the symptoms encountered are headaches, dizziness, muscle and joint pain, palpitations, insomnia, nausea, sore throat or glands, and people can also suffer from extreme mental and physical tiredness. These systems can come and go and at times they will be mild but they can also become very severe. The symptoms are also different from one person to another. When a person has been exercising too much or has been studying for a long time, the CFS symptoms can become worse.
