Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) - in the genes or in the mind?The cause of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is both confusing time, as well as debilitating with skeptics still claiming that the illness is in the mind! A recent report however, has stated that the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), the disease may be in the genes.
Scientist say they have found that patients with (ME) Myalgic encephalomyelitis or chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS as it is more widely known, shared certain genetic characteristics.
Based on a 1999 study of adults in the United States, CFS is thought to affect approximately 4 per 1,000 adults.
Symptoms include extreme fatigue, sleep disorders, memory and concentration difficulties, sore throat, headaches and muscle and joint pains. In many extreme cases you can leave the bed suffers plagued
The exact cause of CFS remains unknown, although several theories exist. Some people claim that the pre-set to the condition develop when triggered by a bacterial illness, Others think that a viral infection, such as glandular fever, can trigger the disease.
Tiredness is normal after a viral infection, but this does not explain why symptoms continue and worsen disease Because the symptoms are so similar to cannon and vary among patients, doctors are only able to diagnose, after ruling any other possible cause.
It is more likely that CFS is caused by a combination of physical and psychological factors that also affect how severe the condition is and how long it lasts.
Although widely recognized as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). An official title of the disease has not yet been confirmed, due to various schools of thought and the lack of evidence of numerous clinical, research and patient communities, in their definition of symptoms and causes.
Many doctors still can not agree whether it is a central nervous, metabolic, (post) Infectious system immune system disorders or neuropsychiatric disorders, even if it is a single homogeneous disorder (with a range of possible clinics) presentations, or more clinical disorders have many features in common
However, researchers in Europe say they have discovered 88 genetic differences between chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) sufferers. This allowed them to divide patients into various types, depending on the severity of thesymptoms.
This could mean that the blood test could soon be developed to help diagnose chronic fatigue Syndromemore easily.
An American study stated that weekly injections of immune adjuvant, which regulates how the immunesystem works could help reduce symptoms for many suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome.
According to the World Health Organization, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a neurological condition that affects the central nervous system within the brain, and has finally been recognized as a debilitating condition since 2002 and the treatments are based almost exclusively on aspects psychological disease.
In 2005, a study found that symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome often exacerbated by mental health. While some improvement may occur with medical care and additional therapies rhythm, cognitive behavioral therapy and exercise therapy classified. However, other surveys of patient organizations have also reported side effects.
What are all the wise men. Do any of the arguments or research or studies demonstrated that debilitating disease, chronic fatigue syndrome is in the genes or in the mind? I rest my case.
