Symptoms of Chronic Fatigue syndrome
Chronic fatigue syndrome is a debilitating condition that can destroy your ability to enjoy life. It’s associated with a number of life-altering signs and symptoms, including:
- Fatigue that does not improve with rest
- Joint pain
- Memory and concentration difficulties
- Enlarged lymph nodes
- Poor quality of sleep
- Sore throat
- Extreme exhaustion
How is chronic fatigue Syndrome diagnosed?
Chronic fatigue syndrome is not easily diagnosed, a fact that causes many of our Los Angeles patients to needlessly suffer in silence for years. Not only can the symptoms mimic those associated with other health problems, but there’s also no single test available that can confirm the condition with absolute certainty.
As such, a diagnosis requires us to first rule out a number of other illnesses that could be causing your symptoms, such as sleep disorders, mental health issues, anemia, diabetes and hypothyroidism. Once those illnesses have been eliminated, you will be diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome if you’ve been experiencing your symptoms without relief for at least six months.

A holistic approach to treating chronic fatigue syndrome
The reality is that there is no one-size-fits-all way to treat the complex condition that is chronic fatigue syndrome. As such, Dr. Jacobs and his team will work closely with you to develop a completely personalized and highly nuanced holistic regimen that can offer relief from your exhaustion and give you back your quality of life.
In terms of conventional treatments, antidepressants, sleeping pills and therapy are all very traditional ways of addressing chronic fatigue syndrome.
However, they are not always 100% effective for every patient. If they don’t work for you, or you don’t like the side effects of the medications, we’ll likely prescribe a blend of alternative therapies that are proven to have a positive effect on chronic fatigue syndrome. For example, we may recommend cognitive behavioral therapy, herbs, supplements, an aerobic exercise plan, acupuncture, yoga, massage and stress-reduction techniques as ways to get your condition under control.
The good news is that our custom holistic treatment plans are extremely effective in providing our Los Angeles patients with profound symptom relief from their chronic fatigue syndrome. As such, as long as you’re committed to your treatment, there is a very good chance that you’ll be able to manage your condition and begin leading a rich and vibrant life free from chronic fatigue once again.
