Has Anyone Ever Recovered From Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Like C Her
Yes: As a physician who treats a number of patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (cfs), I can tell you that yes, some patients do recover. However, it is a process and typically doesn't happen overnight. The most important step in recovery is determining what is causing or worsening your symptoms. There are a large number of causes, and you should see a physician who specializes in cfs for evaluation.See 1 more doctor answer
Some yes, some no: This is a tough question to answer with confidence because the medical community still doesn't fully understand this syndrome. It can have many different causes, some of which are curable and others, not. Depending on the cause, if diagnosed, one can recover from cfs. Regardless, it is a long, slow process that can be measured in months if not years- akin to a marathon, not a a 100 yard sprint.See 1 more doctor answer

Yes: Some can. It depends on the individual. There is no definite known cause and thus no specific treatment. Some people retain chronic symptoms, while others improve over a period of time.See 1 more doctor answer
Could you tell me what are my chances of recovering from chronic fatigue syndrome after ten years?
Poor: It is a chronic condition just as its name implies. Spontaneous resolution is rare.
Possibly: Cfs can be exacerbated by emotional stress.
Lots of symptoms: Symptoms can vary from person to person and the list is so long I would exceed the maximum reply size this site allows, but the "big ones" are constant tiredness not explained by exertion or lack of sleep, muscle and joint pains, new or changed type of headaches, foggy thinking, and many others. There are several similar syndromes, so you need a doctor to confirm which one causes your issue.

Chronic fatigue!: Fatigue is difficult dx. It could be sleep, mental or physical stress. Inflammation in the body causes fatigue, as do most types of autoimmune problems.

But one common, and overlooked problem is being out of shape!See 1 more doctor answer
Still a mystery: Chronic fatigue syndrome refers to severe, continued tiredness that is not relieved by rest and is not directly caused by other medical conditions. As part of the definition of cfs other conditions known to cause fatigue are not present. The cause of cfs is still a mystery but there is often evidence of immune dysfunction and many theorize it is caused by viruses. Please see my comments for more:.See 1 more doctor answer
