- Muscle pain
- Tender lymph nodes
- Self-reported impairment of short-term memory or concentration
- Multijoint pain without swelling or redness
- Unrefreshing and/or interrupted sleep
- Post exertion malaise (a feeling of general discomfort or uneasiness) last more than 24 hours.

Causes of Chronic Fatigue
Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome are similar because a single causative agent has not yet been identified, meaning that traditional lab results typically come back normal leaving doctors at a dead end for a definitive diagnosis. However, studies have shown that factors including viral infections (Epstein Barr), bacterial infections (Lyme disease), stress/elevated cortisol levels and adrenal fatigue, food allergies, excessive oxidative stress, nutritional deficiencies (for example Vitamin D), environmental exposures to toxins including heavy metals, and genetic susceptibilities may all be related to and/or trigger chronic fatigue symptoms. These underlying causes of fatigue can be easily treated once identified, thereby restoring a patient’s health, energy, and enjoyment of life.

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement
We perform laboratory testing of blood, urine and or saliva to get assess a patient’s hormone levels, then we prescribe bio-identical creams, gels, pills or injections specifically formulated and dosed for the patient to help with their imbalances. Bio-Identical hormones are often derived from plants, and are gentler on the body and have less side effects than conventional hormone replacement. Anyone experiencing Menopause, Andropause (decreased testosterone levels in men as they age), Somatopause (a decrease of growth hormone seen in people as they age) or adrenal fatigue could benefit from this type of therapy.
