Menopause and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Chronic fatigue syndrome, or CFS, is a poorly understood condition that can lead to exhaustion that is often severe enough to interfere with your daily activities. The condition has no definitive tests, and your doctor may only be able to diagnose it after ruling out other conditions. CFS often begins after another mild illness, and you may suddenly experience difficulty sleeping, feel tired most of the time, have difficulty concentrating or suffer from headaches, widespread joint or muscle pain and swollen or tender glands and a sore throat. Depression commonly occurs alongside chronic fatigue syndrome.
Some of the symptoms of CFS are similar to symptoms of menopause and can be confused for one another. However, in some cases, the hormonal changes of menopause can trigger or worsen the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome. Women may be able to reduce their symptoms by maintaining a daily diary and noting their symptoms, energy levels and other information and then planning their work days and activities based on their natural rhythms. Improved sleep habits, a healthy diet, and limiting the consumption of alcohol, caffeine and nicotine can also help reduce symptoms. If necessary, take short naps throughout the day to keep your energy levels even, and try to incorporate an exercise routine into your daily schedule in order to boost energy.
