The symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) vary from person to person and medical assessment is needed to exclude other diagnoses. The symptoms can fluctuate from day to day and can cause a substantial reduction in previous levels of occupational, social, or personal activity. The onset of symptoms can be either gradual or sudden.
Brain Fog (Fag)
Brain fog is a common sensation described by people with CFS as poor concentration and memory which is associated with a feeling of "fuzzy headedness". This may be worse after meals and periods of physical exertion and stress.
These can include:
· prolonged tiredness that is unresolved by rest
· impaired memory or concentration (“brain fog”)
· muscle aches and pains (fibromyalgia)
· persistent sore throat
· joint pains without swelling or redness
· unrefreshing or interrupted sleep patterns
· prolonged post-exercise fatigue
· digestive disorders
