Acupuncture Treatment for Chronic Fatigue in Red Bank, NJ

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a debilitating disorder in which a persistent state of tiredness (not related to exertion) is experienced and cannot be relieved by resting. Diagnostic criteria for chronic fatigue syndrome were developed by the CDC in 1994 but the cause of the disorder is still unknown. For this reason, it is very difficult to treat. Chronic fatigue patients are often forced to visit multiple medical specialists before a diagnosis can be made.

Studies completed by the CDC show that between one and four million Americans suffer from chronic fatigue. At least a quarter of these individuals are unemployed because or on disability because of the disease.

A Lack of Conventional Medical Treatment for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

There are currently no medications that have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use with chronic fatigue patients. Although there is no standard treatment for the disorder, medical doctors tend to prescribe low doses of antidepressants; anti-inflammatory agents; antimicrobial drugs (including antivirals and antibiotics); nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs); blood pressure medications; and immunologically active drugs, such as isoprinosine. As is the case with all medications, any one of these drugs has potential side effects that could affect the body negatively.
