For decades, "Yuppie Flu" and "Shirker Syndrome" were words used to describe Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Doctors, employers, and even friends and family did not realize the severity of the symptoms or thought the sufferers were imagining their symptoms. Finally, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have released studies linking Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) to genetic mutations and abnormalities in gene expression. The CDC has even sponsored a 6 million dollar campaign to alert the public regarding the illness. CFS is a multifaceted syndrome (defined as not a definite known cause) and not all people have the same triggers. Thus, it is difficult to treat and diagnose. 

Description of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

v     History: Identified as a distinct condition in the 1980's- identical to myalgic encephalomyelitis in Britain in the 1950's

v     Diagnosis is based on six months of unexplained, overwhelming fatigue and four out of nine of the remaining symptoms experienced by MOST CFS sufferers:

1.      Fatigue without refreshing sleep

2.      No energy to pursue normal activities

3.      Brain fog - impaired memory; inability to concentrate

4.      Debilitating exhaustion and malaise for up to 24 hours, even after mild physical activity or exercise

5.      Sore throat

6.      Muscle pain

7.      Multiple joint pain without noticeable swelling or redness

8.      Headaches different than those previously experienced (new type, pattern or severity)
