Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), or the severe medical condition characterized by fatigue that occurs with a sore throat, joint pain, and loss of concentration. A person with chronic fatigue usually experiences these symptoms for months and does not feel better even after significant est.
Other Symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) are:
- Body malaise
- Sore throat
- Muscle and joint pain
- Cognitive difficulties
- Ongoing severe mental and physical exhaustion
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is complicated to treat, as there is no specific underlying cause. For many patients, medication offers little long term relief for individuals who suffer from CFS.
Studies have indicated that neuropsychological assessments can provide individuals with an alternative for creating a positive, optimistic approach for effectively managing CFS.
Neuropsychological Assessments Through NeuralScan
Multiple studies have been conducted to have more understanding of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. For most of them, results show that patients with CFS show the slow frequency and low voltage brainwaves. Patterns in the brain turn out slow and low, particularly in the frontal lobes. For individuals experiencing CFS, everything in their brain moves at a slower, lower level frequency compounding the problem.
Using Neuropsychological Assessments, these patterns can easily be detected and evaluated.
