In brief: Yes
Chronic fatigue syndrome is a multifactorial consequence of hormonal, immune system and nervous system dysfunction resulting from genetic predispositions and dietary and environmental insults.
These factors impair the patient's ability to produce energy and they end up chronically fatigued. They can have excess inflammation causing pain as well.
