Painful Awareness

The cause of “chronic fatigue syndrome” is not entirely certain, but it is known that it often occurs right after a viral infection. Some people just associate “chronic fatigue syndrome” with constant pains all over your body, but an equally severe symptom is a constant string of fever. The fever can lead to a number of symptoms sprouting from it. The fever puts such a drain on your body that you feel completely tired or your body is completely exhausted almost to a point where you cannot move a single inch. This severe symptom can lead to pains from prolonged sitting and the pains (in some cases) can lead to severe depression. It is rare that the depression is caused from the pain but it is not to be overlooked. If you feel that you or possibly you know have these symptoms and in this severity, you should try consulting your doctor for a more thorough examination of your symptoms.
