Chronic Fatigue Immune Deficiency Syndrome

Chronic Fatigue Immune Deficiency Syndrome (CFIDS) is thought to be not one but a collection of diseases together manifesting the primary symptom of persistent and debilitating fatigue.

The organization known as the CFIDS Society International has proposed three criteria to be used in establishing a positive diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Deficiency Syndrome. They are as follows:

1. There must be a new and distinct case of relapsing or persisting fatigue with an activity reduction level of a minimum of fifty percent for a minimum of six months.

2. Of these conditions, six are currently being experienced: a sore throat, a mild fever, non-localized joint pain, complaints of a neuropsychological nature, disturbed sleep, weakness of the muscles, discomfort of the muscles, headaches, sore lymph nodes, and (verified by the doctor) slight fever, inflammation of the throat, and palpable lymph nodes.

3. The exclusion of other diseases made by examination.

No one is sure exactly when Chronic Fatigue Immune Deficiency Syndrome first arose but it became defined late in the 1970’s. This was also the time frame when AIDS began its rise.

It is unclear exactly what causes Chronic Fatigue Immune Deficiency Syndrome. It seems likely that it may be caused by a virus but mysteriously, it has yet to be established how it migrates from person to person.

The condition afflicts women in the majority of cases, estimated at 75 to 80% of total cases. The age range in which it first strikes is 25 to 50.

The triggers for Chronic Fatigue Immune Deficiency Syndrome are thought to be digestive system stress, depression or emotional stress, exposure of the immune system to some toxicity, and an over-work/under-exercise situation.

Although there is no known cure at this point, there are some things that are beneficial in the coping process. Mild exercise is a great help. It allows the blood flow to increase and boosts the immune system.

The elimination of certain things from your diet may minimize the effect of Chronic Fatigue Immune Deficiency Syndrome. Some items include caffeine, alcohol, and highly refined flour and sugar.

Counseling is another technique to cope with this disease.

Having moral support can be a huge asset when coping with depression and stress.Utilizing these techniques and working for solutions under a doctor’s care and supervision will keep the patient on the road to good health.
