If you’ve been struggling with aches, poor sleep, brain fog, memory loss, sore throats, weight gain, poor libido, fatigue and frequent infections, you might be experiencing conditions associated with Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome (CFIDS). Otherwise recently referred to as ME/CFIDS.
Have you been from one doctor to another seeking a proper diagnosis? Have they ruled out life-threatening illness, and left you with no other explanations? Are your questions & complaints still unanswered? Stop suffering. Through Dr. Mazlen's expertise as a diagnostician and clinician, he has helped thousands of cases of CFIDS over the past 30 years. Through exams and diagnostic testing, he uses his expertise to diagnose the underlying causes of fatigue and tiredness in patients, then provide them with a plan to combat the underlying causes, boost their immunity and overall vitality.
The Truth About Fatigue
WHY AM I…ALWAYS TIRED?
Anemia, heavy menstrual cycle loss, lack of adequate sleep, over sedation, poor diet and rapid weight loss are the most easily treatable causes of fatigue. These are usually self-evident and easily remedied. But, fatigue or tiredness can span a great variety of causes. Often, pointing to a specific cause or causes can entail significant medical detective work. More prolonged fatigue may be due to more severe causes such as acute and/or post-viral fatigue and romes chronic mononucleosis, Chronic Fatigue Immune Deficiency Syndrome (CFIDS), chronic pancreatitis, chronic liver disease, fibromyalgia, rheumalica, diabetes, mellitus, depression and at worst, cancers.
WHAT CAN I DO?
If your fatigue has lasted more than 6 months and you have other symptoms such as frequent infections and swollen glands make sure you see a physician. It is important to have a medical expert rule out and/or address possible serious conditions.
COULD I HAVE CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME?
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is now more precisely known as Chronic Fatigue Immune Deficiency Syndrome (CFIDS). Various scientific and lay-person groups are seeking to find an even more appropriate name for this complex medical condition.
Medical conditions that feature CFIDS are not a new phenomenon. The bell-weather condition that first drew public attention to a persistence of malaise of fatigue was infections mononucleosis or "mono" (the term was coined in 1921). By contract, the first consensus medical definition of C.F.S. was published by the Communicable Disease Center in 1988. A revised medical definition of what is now known as CFIDS was presented and published by Dr. Fukuda and colleagues in 1994. In Great Britain and
Canada, CFS is known by the name myalgic encephalitis (ME). The main difference between the disease "mono" and CFIDS is that infectious mono is a more short-term state with return to normalcy in 3 to 12 months for most patients. In contrast, the majority of CFIDS patients continue to function at less than 50% of normalcy even after 5 years.
CFIDS is most common in Caucasian women over 40, 70% of whom are overweight. As a relatively new medical syndrome it is being increasingly recognized in children and adolescents, and can occur in families in both parents and their children. Approximately 800,000 Americans suffer from this complex disease.
The clinician's challenge in diagnosing CFIDS is to first rule-out other possible causes of prolonged fatigue such as: Lyme's disease, multiple sclerosis, various cancers, depression and post-viral syndrome such as "infectious mono." Today, most practitioners consider the Fukuda et al. criteria which requires concurrent occurrence of four or more symptoms (i.e. sore throat, lymph node pain, muscle aches, joint pain, post exertion malaise, headaches of a new or different type, memory and concentration difficulties and un-refreshing sleep), along with six or more months of fatigue that is not significantly alleviated by rest.
Recent research into CFIDS/ME reveals abnormalities at both the gene level and biomolecular level adversely affecting immunity and resistance to infection. Abnormalities in brain functioning have also been documented. As there is no known singular cause of the disease, there is no singular treatment or cure.
