March is National Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Month – Seattle, WA
March has been declared National Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Month, and you may be curious as to what this means. Perhaps you’ve never heard of the disorder, or maybe you have heard its name but don’t truly know what it is, where it comes from and how it affects the lives of those who have it. March is a month that draws awareness and attention to those who suffer from CFS, and helps them know that they are not alone in their disease that, until only a few decades ago, wasn’t even recognized as a real disorder.
What is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?
If you’ve ever had the flu, then you know all too well the different ways it affects your entire body; aches, pains and persistent fatigue that no amount of sleep seems to cure. Now, imagine what it would feel like to have those relentless muscle and joint pains, crippling headaches and sense of exhaustion that just won’t go away day after day after day. For many people all around the world, this is their reality as sufferers of CFS.
The origin, causes and cure are still unknown, but the number of people who are diagnosed with the disease continues to multiply. More than over a million Americans are currently affected by CFS. This disease, without any explanation, is one that demands national awareness. If more people understand its reality, not only can they become more sympathetic with those who suffer, but many who are currently dealing with inexplicable symptoms may find that there is a name for the illness they haven’t been able to shake.
Treatment For Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
As mentioned above, there is currently no cure for CFS. However, there have been many new and emergent therapies that have proven helpful to many patients in alleviating their symptoms and providing some relief from their constant tiredness, concentration issues and aches and pains. One such therapy is acupuncture.
