Malaise syndrome: There is no blood test for malaise syndrome. Malaise is a general term to mean "feeling unwell." although somewhat controversial, chronic fatigue syndrome is said to be associated with post-exertional malaise such as fatigue, light-headedness, muscle or joint pain, cognitive dysfunction, headache, nausea, weakness, trembling or insomnia.
