Deciphering the puzzle of chronic fatigue syndrome

Millions of people worldwide suffer from a mysterious and often debilitating condition known as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) that causes them to feel so tired they can't complete normal daily activities. The syndrome has long been considered a mystery aliment and it's not uncommon for patients to be suspected of exaggerating symptoms or suffering from mental health issues rather than having a legitimate physical illness.

But as Stanford researcher Jose Montoya, MD, explains in the above video, CFS is a serious disorder and scientists are rapidly working to better understanding the illness in an effort to develop effective treatments. In this presentation, Montoya outlines the symptoms of CFS, provides an overview of current research regarding diagnosis and treatment and discusses the possible connection between the disease and infectious pathogens.
