Those experiencing chronic fatigue and dizziness should seek medical care. Depending on the underlying cause, treatment can be tailored to suit the individual. For example, if you’re suffering from a virus or infection, a course of antibiotics will help. If you’re suffering from CFS, the good news is that many of these conditions can be treated with medicines. Chronic illnesses, however, will not respond to treatment so quickly.
A recent study found that individuals with CFS were significantly more likely to experience lightheadedness and dizziness than controls. The study also found significant differences between the two groups when it came to the severity of symptoms. The researchers found that those suffering from CFS had significantly higher levels of dizziness after standing for more than five minutes than control subjects. These findings highlight the importance of assessing the causes of chronic fatigue and dizziness to improve their quality of life.
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a complex disease that combines symptoms of extreme tiredness and a plethora of other conditions. Symptoms can last for months or even years. Although CFS affects more women than men, it can strike anyone at any age. It is often mistaken for the flu but can manifest as an illness at any age. While it may resemble other illnesses, the symptoms of CFS can vary from person to person.
Patients with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) often exhibit a wide range of symptoms. During the head-up tilt test, their HR tended to increase by 40 beats per minute, with an average BPsys of -12 (-6,-18) mmHg. In addition, two-thirds of the patients were symptomatic, and one patient experienced syncope. Symptoms increased or decreased as the patients climbed or lowered the tilt.
