An epidemiologic study of fatigue with relevance for the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

We surveyed households in four rural Michigan communities to confirm
a reported cluster of cases resembling chronic fatigue
syndrome (CFS) and to study the epidemiology of fatigue in a
rural area. Data were collected from 1698 households. We did
not confirm the reported cluster. The prevalence of households
containing at least one fatigued person was similar between
communities thought to harbor the cluster and communities
selected for comparison. Symptoms and features of generic
forms of fatigue were very similar to those often attributed
to CFS.
