Chronic Fatigue Treatment Therapy in Lake Elmo, MN

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in Lake Elmo, MN

If you've been experiencing severe exhaustion that's lasted longer than six months, you may be suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). If left unchecked, CFS could not only leave you at a loss for energy, it could begin to diminish your quality of life. Dealing with chronic fatigue can affect your performance at work, your time spent with family and friends, and even your enjoyment of recreational activities.

Chronic Fatigue Symptoms

In addition to the obvious symptom from which chronic fatigue gets its name, there are other symptoms doctors look for when trying to make a diagnosis:

  • Memory loss or trouble concentrating
  • Sore throat
  • Swollen lymph nodes in the neck or armpits
  • Muscle pain
  • Joint pain with no swelling or redness
  • Headaches unlike any others you've previously experienced
  • Sleeping without feeling rested
  • Exhaustion that lasts more than 24 hours after any moderate physical activity

Causes of Chronic Fatigue

One of the leading causes of chronic fatigue is hormonal imbalance. Particularly cortisol and the hormones produced in the thyroid gland can lead to fatigue. Your doctor will likely perform a hormone level check to see if your CFS is the result of any imbalance.

Doctors have noted that many of the patients dealing with chronic fatigue also fit a certain profile:

  • Age: CFS generally occurs in patients in their forties and fifties
  • Gender: Woman are more likely to report CFS than men
  • Lifestyle: People with inactive lifestyles or those dealing with weight issues are more likely to develop CFS

Treating CFS with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Chronic Fatigue Treatment in Lake Elmo, MN

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a serious condition that can lead to bouts of depression or a desire to cut off all social interactions. That's why if you suspect you may be suffering from this affliction, it's important to seek out the help of a health care professional.

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT, provides relief for chronic fatigue. By replenishing your body's supply of cortisol, testosterone, melatonin or thyroid gland hormones, BHRT can right your wrongs. Unlike conventional hormone therapy, BHRT uses hormones that are identical to those your glands produce naturally.

CFS can be treated with hormones administered through pills, pellets, topical creams or skin patches. These are all valid methods to regain energy and beat fatigue.

Stop Living with Chronic Fatigue

Living with chronic fatigue makes every day difficult. If you're constantly tired or having trouble concentrating at work, imbalanced hormones may be causing CFS. For more information, please call (651) 504-0551 or contact Conners Clinic online.
