Take the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Quiz
We all get tired. Many of us have felt depressed at times. But the mystery known as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is not like the normal ups and downs we have in everyday life.

You didn't answer this question.
The correct answer is
Typical symptoms include muscle and joint aches, fatigue, and weakness. Other possible symptoms include belly (abdominal) pain, bloating, chest pain, dizziness, dry eyes or mouth, jaw pain, morning stiffness, night sweats, short-term memory loss, mental problems such as panic attacks, shortness of breath, skin sensations, tingling feelings, and weight loss. CFS symptoms either hang on or often come and go for more than 6 months. For most people, CFS symptoms reach a certain point and stay the same. This happens early in the illness. After that, symptoms switch back and forth between getting worse and getting better. Over time, they may go away.
