Conditions Which May Cause Symptoms Similar To Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. 

Many doctors are baffled by chronic fatigue syndrome because many of its symptoms very closely resemble the symptoms of other diseases.

Most often Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is not diagnosed until the patient has suffered from prolonged and unexplained fatigue for over six months or longer, however a battery of tests often need to be conducted before a diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is decided upon.

Some people have severe cases of chronic fatigue syndrome while others suffer from milder forms of it. It goes without saying that if chronic fatigue syndrome can be detected early then treatment can begin right away.

Feelings of temporarily being fatigued are common if a woman is pregnant; or if a person is suffering from depression, any number of infections not to mention when a person is under severe stress.

Infectious mononucleosis is characterized by both extreme tiredness and swollen glands, both of which are common in CFS sufferers.

This disease is most often found in children, teenagers and young adults and if the fatigue continues long after the disease has passed then blood tests may be necessary to find out if the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is present in the body and was to blame for the mononucleosis in the first place.

Be aware Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and EBV are often mutually exclusive and researchers have never found a direct link between the two disorders.

Autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus can sometimes be confused with CFS. Autoimmunity means that an individuals immune system is attacking the tissues of the body.

Autoimmune diseases are more prevalent in women than they are in men and these kinds of diseases tend to evolve very slowly over time.

Sometimes Lyme disease (which is also known as post-Lyme syndrome) is similar in its symptoms to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, especially in areas where outbreaks of Lyme disease are common.
