Chronic Fatigue

If you've been experiencing severe exhaustion that's lasted longer than six months, you may be suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). If left unchecked, CFS could not only leave you at a loss for energy, it could begin to diminish your quality of life.

Chronic Fatigue Symptoms

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

In addition to the obvious symptom from which chronic fatigue gets its name, there are other symptoms doctors look for when trying to make a diagnosis:

  • Memory loss or trouble concentrating
  • Sore throat
  • Swollen lymph nodes in the neck or armpits
  • Muscle pain
  • Joint pain with no swelling or redness
  • Headaches unlike any others you've previously experienced
  • Sleeping without feeling rested
  • Exhaustion that lasts more than 24 hours after any moderate physical activity

Causes of Chronic Fatigue

One of the leading causes of chronic fatigue is hormonal imbalance. Particularly cortisol and the hormones produced in the thyroid gland can lead to fatigue. Your doctor will likely perform a hormone level check to see if your CFS is the result of any imbalance.

Treating CFS with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, provides relief for chronic fatigue. By replenishing your body's supply of cortisol, testosterone, melatonin or thyroid gland hormones, BHRT can right your wrongs. Unlike conventional hormone therapy, BHRT uses hormones that are identical to those your glands produce naturally.
