According to newly found research results, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome i.e. CFS is caused due to childhood abuse. Childhood abuse can be physical i.e. sexual, or emotional i.e. neglect and unjust anger towards a child.
It is reported in the January issue of ‘Archives of General Psychology’ that the people who experienced childhood abuse were 6 times more likely to counter CFS than those who fortunately didn’t.
According to a website; Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s CFS cannot be treated through rest. And sadly enough, it gets worse when the patient works physically or mentally. Problem in concentrating, muscle ache and joint pain include in its symptoms.
Another abnormalcy found out by Dr. Christine Heim and her colleagues at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, is that childhood abuse caused a remarkable drop in levels of cortisol. It is a hormone which a body requires to respond to tension.
