Do you feel tired, even when you’ve gotten plenty of sleep the night before? Does your mind feel “foggy” all day long, no matter how many cups of coffee you have?
While many people think that having low energy is a byproduct of not getting enough sleep, it can be more serious and actually the symptom of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Signs of chronic fatigue often include extreme tiredness that can occur following light movement or exercise. Poor decision-making, fogginess/memory loss, and cognitive decline may also be signs of a chronic fatigue issue.
As for what causes this condition, food allergies and other chronic issues such as adrenal dysfunction or leaky gut syndrome are most common. A poor diet, a dormant infection, or exposure to environmental toxins are other potential causes for chronic fatigue.
