Chronic fatigue syndrome remains a bit of a mystery among the medical community. Rather than one feeling rested and ready to tackle another day after a good night’s sleep, those with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) often feel even more exhausted upon waking. The exhaustion felt by CFS sufferers has no known reason and gets worse with exercise – be it mental or physical. What are some other symptoms of chronic fatigue?
- Abnormal headaches
- Soreness or pain after physical exertion
- Pain in the muscles and joints of the body
- Tender or swollen lymph nodes
- Sore throat
What Is Known About Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?
While the exact cause of CFS is still shrouded in mystery, many researchers and medical professionals agree that the symptoms of this condition are related to a malfunction of the central nervous system (CNS). The spine is responsible for providing protection for some key components of the central nervous system, specifically the spinal cord and the brainstem. When the spine is out of alignment, it can hinder the signals being sent to and from the brain and body.

The top two vertebrae of the spine are most likely to be the ones to blame if communication is disturbed as they are located right at the brainstem. This area is the communication highway of the body. Misalignments often occur here due to injury, accidents, daily wear and tear, or trauma to the head and neck.
