What Is Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia?
People with CFS are both physically and emotionally exhausted, and many feel stressed by the constant need to adapt to everyday life. FMS is often identical except for the additional persistent muscle pain.
Do you feel misunderstood by friends and family? Are you treated with anger and suspicion instead of empathy and compassion? Many doctors don’t believe CFS or FMS are true disorders.
Statistics Prove You Are Not Suffering Alone.
The prevalence of Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome (CFIDS) is estimated at over 800,000 people and growing, just in the U.S. alone. Estimates indicate between 60-85% of the cases of CFS diagnosed are for women. FMS, being easier to diagnose affects over 5 million Americans, with over 87% being women.
If you suspect you have CFS or FMS your first reaction may be to go to your family doctor who most likely will give you a prescription drug to take to cover up one of the symptoms. Most people who have these disorders say the drugs don’t help them, but in fact, make things worse. It’s an easy way out for the doctor to prescribe you medication over and over again. This is not a cure.
