Myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) is a complex condition characterized by extreme fatigue lasting at least six months, unrelieved by rest, accompanied by a set of persistent symptoms. In many cases of chronic fatigue syndrome, the condition emerges suddenly, often triggered by a flu-like infection or a physical or psychological trauma. While there are no specific measures to guarantee the prevention of ME/CFS, staying current with recommended vaccinations, such as those for the flu and COVID, may reduce the risk of developing the disorder.
