In recent years, a disease known as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) has become the object of close research by doctors in academic and alternative medicine. The first scientific report is considered a description of the pathology of Lloyd A. in 1984 after an epidemic outbreak of the disease in the United States. In the UK, the disease is known as post-viral fatigue syndrome, in the US – as a syndrome of chronic fatigue and immune dysfunction.
After an international conference held in 1994, the name of the chronic fatigue syndrome was assigned to the disease. WHO experts consider it as a “state of dysfunction and stress”, developed criteria to distinguish CFS from other somatic and neurological diseases accompanied by chronic fatigue (Fukuda K. et al., 1994). In the United States, the disease is reported with a frequency of 98-267 cases per 100,000 population.
