Were you looking for information on Chronic Fatigue? Cronic tiredness is a common misspelling and variation of chronic fatigue.
Chronic fatigue (or chronic tiredness) is diagnosed when symptoms of exhaustion or lack of energy last for more than six months. Although the exact cause is unknown, infection, hormone levels, and stress are believed to play a role in its development. It's important to note that chronic fatigue is not the same thing as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) -- chronic fatigue is a symptom; CFS is a condition.
