Patients exhibiting symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome have more to worry about than just feeling tired. Other symptoms are “brain fog” and extreme fatigue which do not disappear after sleep and may last for up to 6 months. It is difficult to diagnose the condition because there are no conclusive tests or biomarkers for checking. Researchers have recently discovered abnormal structures in the brains of certain patients who have the condition, which is offering some hope for the diagnosis and treatment of the condition.
The study, led by Dr Michael M. Zeineh of the Stanford University School of Medicine, California, was published in the Radiology journal.
