Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is a disorder that causes extreme fatigue that is unchanged with rest and which interferes with one's ability to attend to daily activities. It is often accompanied with an array of symptoms that can include muscle pain, memory problems, headaches, pain in multiple joints, sleep problems, sore throat and tender lymph nodes. Since other illnesses can cause similar symptoms, CFS is hard to diagnose. Dr. Montoya discusses CFS and current research regarding diagnosis and treatment and the possible CFS-infection connection.
