Chronic fatigue syndrome is known for making people who suffer from it feel tired all the time. No matter how much rest you get, you just never feel like it’s enough. You may wonder if you have chronic fatigue syndrome or if something else is making you feel tired. Here are some common reasons people often feel tired.
- Not getting enough sleep: Some people feel that 5-6 hours a night is enough for them. This is not so. Almost everyone needs at least 8 hours of sleep a night.
- Consuming energy drinks or caffeine: Energy drinks, vitamin water, and caffeinated drinks do not give the quick burst of energy you might be looking for. Actually, they more than likely make you feel more tired. Tea, certain medications, and chocolate also have caffeine.
- Doing too much: It is important to learn to say no to additional responsibilities or activities, and it will get easier the more you practice. If you are overstretching your time and energy, you will probably feel tired a lot of the time.

- It could be a medical problem: Things such as chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, sleep apnea, heart disease, hypothyroidism, urinary tract infections, and food allergies can all be reasons for feeling tired.
- A misalignment in the top bones of the neck: This may have occurred due to a trauma or accident from years previous, even if it felt insignificant at the time. As time goes by, this type of misalignment can put the brainstem under pressure, causing the nervous system not to function at its best. This causes improper signals to be sent to the brain and can lead to chronic fatigue syndrome or other similar conditions.
Getting Care for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Women tend to put themselves last when it comes to caring for their health, but this is the opposite of what should be done. A good place to begin is by seeking the care of an upper cervical chiropractor to make sure the feeling of chronic fatigue is not being brought on by a misaligned atlas bone. We would be happy to assist you here at Atlas Chiropractic in Taylor, Texas.
