Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a complex, long-term disorder characterized by extreme fatigue that cannot be attributed to any underlying medical condition. This fatigue persists despite rest and severely hampers normal activities. The precise cause of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome remains unknown, with theories spanning viral infections to psychological stress.

Symptoms extend beyond mere tiredness and include post-exertional malaise, unrefreshing sleep, cognitive impairment, and orthostatic intolerance. Diagnosis is challenging due to the absence of a single definitive test; instead it requires a careful evaluation of symptoms and ruling out other health issues.

The condition often imposes an invisible yet profound impact on quality of life. Treatment focuses on symptom management with strategies encompassing cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), graded exercise therapy (GET), and medication for co-existing conditions like depression or pain. Despite these interventions, many individuals experience persistent symptoms.
