Binyamin Rothstein, D.O., an experienced Osteopathic Physician, has treated a number of patients for chronic fatigue. Osteopaths are traditionally-trained physicians who are also trained to treat disorders through physical touch and holistic treatments. They often provide relief to patients that continue to experience symptoms of conditions like chronic fatigue syndrome even with traditional treatment.
If you feel that you could be suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome after reading the outline below, it might be time to make an appointment with an osteopath like Binyamin Rothstein:
- Primary Symptoms – Primary symptoms of chronic fatigue are those in addition to the tiredness that a patient might feel from the fatigue itself. These can include headaches, migraines, sore throats, persistent insomnia, sickness or exhaustion following physical or mental activity, memory problems, concentration problems, muscle pain, lymph node swelling and joint stiffness.
- Secondary Symptoms – Secondary symptoms that commonly accompany chronic fatigue syndrome include brain fog, dizziness, balance issues, irritable bowel syndrome, night sweats, chills, allergies, sensitivity to light, depression and mood swings.
- Severity – The severity of chronic fatigue varies with each patient. Some experience only a few of the aforementioned symptoms and lead relatively active lives while others experience many of the above symptoms and are severely impaired by the disorder. The symptoms of chronic fatigue can also affect patients in cycles of differing severity, causing a pattern of remission and relapse.
Never attempt to diagnose and treat a condition yourself. Doing so can cause underlying health problems to go untreated. Instead, visit a trained healthcare professional like Dr. Binyamin Rothstein for proper diagnosis and care as soon as possible.
