Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

chronic fatigue syndrome

Accidents of all types such as workplace accidents, auto accidents and construction site accidents can cause immediate injuries as well as injuries down the road that are impossible to predict. One of these is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). CFS is an extremely complicated disorder with the main symptom being extreme fatigue. The fatigue and lethargy need to last at least six months. Underlying medical conditions that can cause exhaustion need to be ruled out. In CFS cases the fatigue worsens with physical or mental activity and no amount of rest seems to help. Many attorneys think these cases are difficult to prove in court and will not take them. That is not at all fair to the victim so our Pennsylvania injury attorneys absolutely handle Chronic Fatigue Syndrome claims in Pennsylvania.

As CFS does not have one or two glaring symptoms it can take time to diagnose it. Typical symptoms of CFS can include:

  • Difficulties with memory, focus and concentration
  • Dizziness that worsens with moving from lying down or sitting to standing

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a laymens term. Medically CFS is actually called myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME). Sometimes it’s abbreviated as ME/CFS. Recently the term systemic exertional intolerance disease (SEID) has been proposed by members of the medical community.
