How do I differentiate between Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome? Or are they same?
While Fibromyalgia is a long standing extensive pain affecting the muscles & joints, Chronic Fatigue syndrome is extreme tiredness or weakness after physical or mental exertion that persists for more than 6 months.
The associated symptoms of Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome are more or less the same. There is tiredness, weakness, body aches, muscle & joint pains, headache, sleep disturbances, inability to concentrate, memory loss or mental confusion in both conditions.
However, what differentiates Fibromyalgia from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is that in Fibromyalgia, there is marked aches and pains felt in the muscles of the body. There is intense sore & bruised feeling. In fact, there are certain tender points in the body which are very painful & point towards Fibromyalgia. There are almost 18 such tender points, out of which some are definitely present in a patient with Fibromyalgia. These points include the base of the neck, mid chest region, elbows, shoulder points, etc.

One more differentiating factor is that the symptoms of fatigue are not better by rest, whereas the symptoms may get better after taking some rest.
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a condition in which one experiences extreme physical and mental fatigue that is not caused by an underlying medical illness. The fatigue may worsen with physical or mental activity, but doesn't improve with rest. The fatigue is overwhelming, and interferes with the person's normal day-to-day activities.
