Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or CFS is a common fatigue disorder that cannot be characterized by any underlying medical condition. The fatigue may get worse with physical or mental activity but doesn't improve with rest. While here are many theories as to what causes CFS, there isn't one test that can diagnose it. The theories range from viral infection to mental stress, but the cause still isn't known.
Signs and symptoms may include:
Some viruses cause someone to develop this disorder. After someone gets infected with a virus, their body is still recovering and healing. This can trigger Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. This is extremely relevant for nowadays because of COVID-19. When people get sick with the Coronavirus, they experience a lot of fatigue and loss of concentration. Therefore, is it important to be aware of this condition.
Another explanation for CFS is hormonal imbalance. People who have chronic fatigue syndrome also sometimes experience abnormal blood levels of hormones produced in the hypothalamus, pituitary glands, or adrenal glands.
There are a few factors that might increase one's risk for CFS:
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome can also cause higher levels of depression. When someone isn't getting enough sleep and isn't resting enough – this can cause high levels of anxiety and depression.
It is important to consult with a doctor when you experience excessive fatigue. Because the cause isn't known yet, it is important to take care of it in order to prevent any complications.
My son went to Israel for a year requiring infusion every 6-8 weeks. It was very stressful at times to coordinate getting his meds sent to Israel, scheduling appointments, and having to worry about him going on his own. Then a friend told me about EMA Care. EMA Care was truly amazing.

I would like to recommend Eliana (EMA care) for her sensitive and timely help for clients who are having difficulty navigating the health care system Israel, specifically for Anglos, whether new olim or those of us who been here for many years.
The obstacles of interfacing with the health care system here is daunting, especially at a time when one is going through an acute or chronic condition that is protracted and complicated. Often one doesn’t know whom to turn to or where to go,...
During our recent visit to Israel, we really struggled to find food for our son who has anaphylactic level allergies to egg and sesame. We approached both restaurants and hotels and were told they were unable or unwilling to take responsibility for preparing his food.
After learning about Dr. Eliana on-line, we contacted her in the...

When our son was injured in a car accident during his yeshiva year in Israel, he had to start navigating the medical system on his own. But once we contacted Dr. Eliana Aaron at EMA Care (www.HealthCareIsrael.com), she immediately flew into action. Dr. Aaron accompanied our son in the ER and made sure he and we knew at every step exactly what was done and what needed to be done, especially important for someone who suffered a concussion and...
I write to express my hakarat hatov (positive recognition) and my gratitude to the two health professionals from EMA Care that have been from the start professionally involved and continue to be interested in my care and long-term recovery.
After a serious fracture, I was hospitalized in the north, and my insurance company recommended EMA Care services to help me. After a surgeon was pressuring me to sign consent for surgery, I realized that I needed to remain...
It sounds like my dad has decided to hire you and I'm thrilled.
He actually seems much calmer than he has been in a long time and he is very happy with what the EMA Care staff has done so far.
You provide an amazing service and I feel very fortunate to have you on board.
“EMA” Care is so fitting a name for Dr. Eliana Aaron’s exceptional gap year concierge health care service. Dr. Aaron is not only an incredible health care professional; she is also an “Ema Extraordinaire” in every sense of the word. My child had a range of medical needs while abroad, some anticipated and others not, and she was there for him (and me) – even in the middle of the night, -- always calm, reassuring, thinking out of the box, getting him to the appropriate medical professionals...
