It’s normal to feel wiped, especially after a busy day at work followed by a frenetic evening at home. But chronic fatigue goes beyond just simply feeling tired: This is a deep in your bones exhaustion, where you simply don’t have the strength to put in a full day at work or school or even socialize without feeling completely spent.
About 80% of people with chronic fatigue report this problem Even though you’re so fatigued, you have trouble nodding off, and when you do, you may find you’re aroused easily.
You can’t concentrate.
People assume chronic fatigue syndrome is just about feeling tired, but there are other symptoms like being very forgetful, having trouble focusing, and getting distracted very easily. Sufferers compare it to going through a deep gray fog.
Whether it’s just going for a walk or suffering through your in-laws fighting at Christmas dinner, any physical or emotional stress leaves you feeling as if you’ve been battered through three world wars.
