Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Chronic fatigue syndrome refers to repeated prolonged fatigue (more than half a year) for which no identifiable cause and organic lesion can be found.  Other symptoms frequently present include low-grade fever, dizziness, generalized muscle weakness and pain, sore throat, painful lymph nodes in the neck and isthmus of fauces, insomnia, amnesia, depression, anxiety, unstable emotion and poor concentration.  These symptoms cannot be relieved by rest in bed resting, and they interrupt the normal life and work.
