Most people experience fatigue even occasionally. But people with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) suffer from profound fatigue for longer periods of time as well as from insomnia and other sleep disorders, and therefore have trouble alleviating their fatigue by sleep. A recent study reveals that people with CFS have a blunted response to sleep deprivation, which suggests that they may be less able to recover from sleep loss when compared with people without CSF.
