Is chronic fatigue syndrome real? Life-threatening condition can leave sufferers bed bound
CHRONIC fatigue syndrome - also called "yuppie flu" - affects thousands in the UK. But there's long been debate about whether the symptoms of extreme tiredness and muscle pain are all in the sufferer's mind.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) - also known as Myalgic Encephalopathy (ME) - is a long-term illness with a wide range of symptoms and no known cause.
It affects 250,000 people in Britain who will suffer from extreme tiredness, muscle pain, sleep disorders, headaches and flu-like symptoms.
A recent study by Stanford University has suggested for the first time that the condition is driven by chronic inflammation.
They also discovered that the condition could soon be diagnosed by a blood test.
