The early sign of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a strong and noticeable fatigue. It is not like the normal tiredness we experience in everyday life. It comes on suddenly and can either hang on or come and go frequently for more than 6 months. The profound weakness of CFS does not go away with a few good nights of sleep. Instead, it surreptitiously steals your energy and vigor over months and sometimes years.
For many people, chronic fatigue syndrome can begin after a bout with a minor illness such as a cold, or an intestinal bug. Often, people say that their illnesses started during a period of high stress. In others, CFS develops more gradually with no clear illness or other event starting it. Symptoms can include:
Doctors have seen the syndrome in people of all ages and social and economic classes from several, mostly English-speaking, countries around the world. Chronic fatigue syndrome is diagnosed two to four times more often in women than in men. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that as many as 500,000 people in the United States have CFS or a CFS-like condition.

So when other diseases are ruled out, and if your illness has at least four of the possible eight recognized CFS symptoms, your health care provider may diagnose you with chronic fatigue syndrome. CFS varies from person to person.
The lack of any proven effective treatment can be frustrating to both you and your health care providers. If you have chronic fatigue syndrome, health experts recommend that you try to maintain good health by:
Because CFS can be a serious illness that affects many aspects of daily living, you should consult a qualified doctor who can evaluate you and help you manage your illness. Work closely with your health care provider to find a program that works well for you.
