Chronic fatigue syndrome is a condition characterized by six or more months of extreme debilitating fatigue. This fatigue is made worse by any physical or mental activity and is not improved by bed rest. People with chronic fatigue syndrome have difficulty with daily tasks of life that most people wouldn't think twice about, like getting dressed or taking a shower.

Other symptoms may include muscle pain, weakness, headache, sore throat, swollen lymph nodes, memory problems, and pain in multiple joints and difficulty with sleeping. The cause of chronic fatigue syndrome is unknown.
