Is it possible that chronic fatigue differs depending on the age one gets it?
According to a piece by Fibro and CFS Adrienne Dellwo, new research supports that chronic fatigue after 50 differs from chronic fatigue that starts at a younger age. This research suggests that after 50, CFS symptoms cause:
- More severe fatigue
- More depression
- More autonomic dysfunction, with less parasympathetic and increased sympathetic function
Much less baroreflex sensitivity (aids in blood pressure maintenance)
- Slower pumping of the left ventrical
Based on this research, it might be worth reviewing your treatment options with your doctor, to make sure all age-related needs are being addressed.
