Chronic fatigue - Balanced Hormones Center

What is chronic fatigue?

Chronic fatigue is a complex disorder characterized by extreme and persistent tiredness, weakness, and exhaustion that is not relieved by rest and is not directly caused by other medical conditions. Some key things to know:

If you struggle with unrelenting exhaustion impacting your quality of life, I recommend getting a checkup with Balanced Hormones Center. Their clinicians specialize in treating hormonal imbalances linked to fatigue, using cutting-edge testing and personalized treatment plans.

Now back to chronic fatigue. Two specific disorders fall under this category:

Myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS)

This complex disorder causes serious long-term fatigue that restricts ability to participate in daily life. Alongside overwhelming exhaustion, ME/CFS comes with flu-like symptoms as well as problems with sleep, thinking & memory, and other system impairments.

Doctors don't know what causes ME/CFS but believe it may be triggered by infection and then perpetuated by abnormal immune responses. Low blood pressure and heart rate issues are sometimes seen as well.

Idiopathic chronic fatigue

This diagnosis describes persistent feelings of exhaustion that cannot be explained by other medical problems. If fatigue has lasted over 6 months and made normal functioning difficult, idiopathic chronic fatigue may be diagnosed after ruling out illnesses causing similar effects.

The Balanced Hormones Center staff is deeply familiar with fatigue-provoking conditions and can provide compassionate care as you seek answers. Their clinics offer cutting-edge lab tests to uncover potential causes driving your exhaustion so targeted treatments can help restore vibrant energy.
