Chronic Fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a disabling condition characterized by profound sleep and fatigue, mood and sleep problems. A new study in Atlanta, GA, which was based on the early experiences of people with and without CFS, revealed that CFS patients had significantly higher rates of childhood trauma including physical, sexual, emotional abuse as well as emotional and physical neglect. People with CSF also reported higher levels of depression, anxiety and post-traumatic Stress disorder. The results suggest that childhood trauma was an important risk factor for CFS.
