Chronic Fatigue Q & A

What is chronic fatigue?

Chronic fatigue is a disorder that causes complete physical and mental exhaustion. More than feeling tired, chronic fatigue doesn’t resolve with a good night’s rest. It causes severe fatigue that can last for days or weeks at a time. Also called myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), this debilitating disorder can be difficult to diagnose and treat.

What does a chronic fatigue flare-up feel like?

Chronic fatigue symptoms can vary. Symptoms may develop gradually for some people, while others experience a sudden crash. Telltale signs of chronic fatigue typically include:

  • Severe fatigue
  • Post-exertional malaise (fatigue after physical or mental activity)
  • Cognitive difficulties
  • Problems concentrating
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Headaches
  • Swollen, tender lymph nodes
  • Nausea, bloating, and abdominal pain

The severity of your symptoms may vary, but fatigue must last for at least six months to qualify as chronic fatigue syndrome.

How does chronic fatigue develop?

While the exact cause of chronic fatigue is unknown, experts believe genetics, viral or bacterial infections, and trauma can contribute to its development. Common risk factors include:


Chronic fatigue can occur at any age, but it’s more common in middle-aged people and young adults.


Women are about 2-4 times more likely than men to receive a chronic fatigue diagnosis.

Underlying conditions

Many chronic pain conditions, such as fibromyalgia and arthritis, can increase your risk of chronic fatigue.

How can IV therapy treat chronic fatigue?

IV therapy can replenish your body’s essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals vital for energy production and overall well-being. It delivers these substances directly into your bloodstream, allowing immediate absorption.


Strive IV and Wellness offers multiple IV drips to minimize chronic fatigue symptoms, improve immunity, and improve hydration. Since the nutrients immediately reach your bloodstream, you feel their benefits quickly without the side effects of oral delivery, like nausea and vomiting.

This delivery method can promote sustained energy levels, supporting your journey toward enhanced vitality and quality of life.

When you arrive for a consultation, the Strive and Wellness team asks about your symptoms, current medications, and other factors that can influence your treatment. The wellness clinic offers several IV drips to help relieve chronic fatigue symptoms, including the Myers Cocktail and Immunity IV Drip.
