Fatigue – Another Symptom Of Modern Living
For most of us today, the world is moving at too fast a pace; we’ve got to run around, helter-skelter, trying to keep up with a life that, all too often, seems to be one step ahead of us. Fatigue – and its related symptoms – is becoming an ever-greater problem; robbing us of our ability to truly enjoy our lives, and resulting in various residual ailments that further damage health and lifestyles – already taking a beating from the pace of modern living.
To add to the problem, the very medicine to which we almost automatically turn to for every (imagined or otherwise) ache and pain is at a complete loss as to what potential remedies to suggest to combat Fatigue.
The symptoms are all too clear, but medical science is unable to offer its usual instant “magic remedies”.
Chronic Fatigue Versus Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
While simply feeling perpetually tired is, in itself, a serious problem worthy of immediate attention, these symptoms of tiredness (Chronic Fatigue) should not be confused with the far more serious and potentially dangerous Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Chronic Fatigue is defined as:
“Severe disabling fatigue which lasts at least 6 months, made worse by minimal physical or mental exertion, and for which there is no adequate medical explanation.”
Symptoms by which chronic fatigue can be diagnosed are:
- Muscle aches and pains, especially after physical exertion.
- Feelings of heightened emotional sensitivity – depression.
- Disturbed, restless sleep, in spite of extreme tiredness.
- Nausea and loss of appetite.
- Constant sore throat and swollen glands.
- High temperature without apparent cause.
- Faintness and dizziness.
While there is no medical test which can determine, with any certainty if one is suffering from Chronic Fatigue or simply feeling very tired, there are a variety of other illnesses, which _can_ be tested for, that might be responsible for similar symptoms to the ones experienced by sufferers of Chronic Fatigue. You should check with your doctor to make sure that you are not afflicted by anything else before jumping to the conclusion that it is Chronic Fatigue that ails you. Self-diagnosis is the most common cause of mis-diagnosis.
Chronic Fatigue is usually the result of something else, such as an infection, high stress levels or an ongoing lack of sleep.
So, What Is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome can be identified, with some accuracy, by the presence of the following additional symptoms:
- Symptoms of severe chronic fatigue lasting more than 6 months.
- Impairment of short-term memory.
- Multi-joint pain, lacking redness or swelling.
- Muscle pain.
- Headaches that are more severe and more common than usually experienced.
- Alcohol intolerance.
- Abdominal pain.
Oxygen Treatment For Chronic Fatigue
It has been found through various studies that Oxygenation of the blood can help reduce the impact of Chronic Fatigue and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Oxygen, after all, has always been recognised and proven as having the necessary properties to improve and quicken the body’s natural healing processes. The task has always been how to saturate the cells with sufficient Oxygen.
One option, albeit not the most efficient, has always been exercise. The advantage of exercise is that it can be taken up, essentially, as a home remedy. Treatment at home is, when possible, always preferable to doctors and hospitals. The problem is that for sufferers of Chronic Fatigue, exercise is an almost impossible option to consider.
Another option is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is one of the most effective methods of Oxygenation, but requires a great deal of equipment, the cost of which can add up. In addition, finding the equipment as well as people to administrate the treatment can be difficult, to say the least.
Mr. Oxygen provides a highly effective method (in terms of combining effectiveness and convenience) of oxygenating the blood. Our oxygen capsules can be taken as a remedy at home – a natural treatment to combat the symptoms of Chronic Fatigue, and provide relief for sufferers.
