In brief: Only if you feel so

Go to a4m.Com and use the doctor locator function to find a doctor in your area to help you find the cause of your cfs and help you fix it.
Cfs is usually a metabolic problem coupled with abnormal hormones, thyroid, and undiagnosed toxins stored in the body. Advanced testing guided by that doc can help you pinpoint causes and get relief and back to a normal life if that is your goal.

In brief: Not by itself

CFS isn't a medically definable impairment.
You have to have other conditions that combine with it to equal a disability listing, or you have to establish that your residual functional capacity is low enough to qualify on that basis; with cfs alone, that just doesn't happen.
