Fatigue and how to combat it with the help of our doctors in Stamford, CT
We’ve all had instances where we’ve felt tired. Maybe we spent too many nights awake studying for exams in college or had a baby and went months neglecting our own individual sleep patterns to get through each day. However, some individuals deal with fatigue on a daily basis without any known cause. When this happens, the team at the Connecticut Center for Integrative Medicine of Stamford, Connecticut, may evaluate an individual to see if they are dealing with a condition known as chronic fatigue syndrome, sometimes referred to as CFS.
