Healthcare Professionals Evaluate Connection Between Chronic Fatigue Syndrome And Arthritis

Orlando, FL – April 23, 2015 – Many people do whatever they can to recharge and regain their energy. They might engage in sports, do something they love, sleep, drink energy beverages or participate in other activities. However, for people who are tired all the time, the loss of energy can mean something else.

Healthcare professionals have evaluated the connection between chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and arthritis. CFS is characterized as a state of fatigue that often lasts for half a year or longer. Doctors often suspect CFS when patients experience long-term symptoms of fatigue.

“There are several tests that patients go through such as urine tests, a physical exam, blood tests, a symptom inventory and a mental status exam. However, the results of these tests don’t necessarily diagnose CFS. Instead, they help exclude other conditions,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson Michelle O’Sullivan.

The director of the Fatigue Consultation Clinic, Lucinda Bateman, MD, stated that CFS symptoms have been compared to those of other ailments such as the flu. There are many symptoms such as exhaustion, weakness, tender lymph nodes, achy muscles and joints, dizziness, headache and fever. Patients may also feel too sick to move or get a good quality sleep.

According to experts, people may have CFS if they have been suffering from fatigue for six months and they are not diagnosed as having multiple sclerosis, mononucleosis, autoimmune disease or kidney disease.

These symptoms of CFS are also shared with other conditions such as arthritis. For instance, people with CFS or arthritis may look physically fine. However, unlike arthritis, CFS can be difficult to diagnose mainly because damaged tissues are not detected on an X-ray. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) showed the association of CFS with three genes that all affect the ability of the body to handle stress.

Rheumatoid arthritis fatigue is a bothersome symptom to handle in addition to pain. It can be overwhelming, unpredictable and very different from normal exhaustion. Fatigue results in the inability to sleep and perform daily activities. Self-management strategies are usually used to help patients deal with it.

Health experts suggest that patients should discuss their fatigue and other symptoms with their doctor. Their doctor can them recommend remedies and techniques that can be helpful for their overall condition. They should also ensure that their diet is nutritionally balanced every day.

Many arthritis sufferers use natural alternatives such as glucosamine to not just alleviate pain, but also to improve their overall condition. Unlike drugs, glucosamine contains natural and therapeutic substances that are believed to be good for the body (http://www.amazon.com/Glucosamine-Sulfate-Chondroitin-Supplement-Turmeric/dp/B00DUMO9X4/).
