“Chronic fatigue syndrome is actually an independent disease that has its place in the international classification of diseases,” explained Vladimir Neronov. “Talking about this condition as a disease and not explaining the existing laziness with the suspicion of a complex pathology, is “We need to have a decrease in performance by half (50%) or more, and for six months or more.”

What causes the disease? It turns out that it’s not just about increasing the loads, ignoring the regime and rest, as is commonly thought. The cause, according to Dr. Neronov, may be an infectious disease.

“Currently, many researchers have fully demonstrated the connection between chronic fatigue syndrome and the persistence of herpes viruses types 6 and 7. These viruses are detected in many people (up to 80%) and can remain dormant for a long time. Quite peaceful and painless. “However, under certain circumstances (stress, injuries, poisoning, concomitant diseases) they can increase activity and cause the development of chronic fatigue syndrome,” says Vladimir Neronov. “Taking this into account, in addition to the qualitative identification of the virus itself “It is necessary to determine its quantity. In no case should it be treated. Doing it yourself is the domain of specialists.”

In addition to the herpes virus, chronic viral hepatitis B or C (sometimes even multiple infections together) can cause chronic fatigue and decreased performance.

“Low hemoglobin levels (anemia) and the causes that accompany it also cause fatigue,” says the expert.

Therefore, if there is a persistent decrease in performance, it is first necessary to undergo a simple examination in the clinic (dispensary examination) – an accessible set of studies that will form a general picture of the state of health.

“In cases where there is no obvious problem, it is worth examining in more detail to exclude viral hepatitis or persistent herpes viruses,” says Dr. Neronov.

And yet, the most common cause of “loss of strength” (fatigue) in our turbulent times is overwork; For many it is frequent and chronic. In such cases, it will be useful to follow the rules of sleep, rest and work, proper nutrition and adequate physical activity, Dr. Neronov concluded.

“Chronic fatigue syndrome is a condition in which a person always feels tired, regardless of where they are or what they are doing. A distinctive feature of this syndrome is the inability to regain strength after sleeping, during rest or at night. change your activity,” says psychotherapist Chloe Milavitsa: The main symptoms are a feeling of loss of energy, apathy, irritability, insomnia, frequent colds, muscle aches or headaches.”

When these symptoms appear, especially if they persist for a long time, you need to pay attention to your physical and mental health.

“These conditions are part of the structure of many diseases, therefore, first of all, a complete medical examination is necessary in order not to miss a serious illness. If you are physically and mentally healthy, do not experience serious psycho-emotional stress, but “You still feel the symptoms listed above, then think about how complete your health is and the lifestyle you lead,” advises Dr. Milavitsa. We are talking not only about proper nutrition, sleep patterns and physical activity, but also about such important factors as an approving and supportive environment, the presence of hobbies and entertainment. “The most important thing is a positive attitude towards oneself,” concluded the psychotherapist.
