Chronic fatigue syndrome may be linked to bowel

CFS patients often have symptoms of irritable bowel (in my experience 100 percent), new onset food allergies and chemical sensitivities, and low blood pressure with dizziness when standing up too quickly. No medications seem to be effective and the success of many nontraditional medicine therapies is limited. CFS shares many symptoms with chronic infections, but a causal association with viral infections and Lyme disease is inconsistent. However, the symptoms of CFS do closely mimic the common symptoms of leaky gut syndrome.
