Resulting in Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia
Over the past 10 years, the incidence of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) has exploded by 400% to 1,000% as documented in five studies. The numbers for those with CFS in the US, previously estimated at 500,000, are now being re-tallied at closer to 1 to 2.5 million. Previous estimates placed the number of Americans with FMS at 6 million. Studies suggest this has likely gone up in the last decade from 12 to 24 million. Meanwhile, a quarter of Americans suffer chronic pain and more than half are fatigued.
