Thank you for waiting.
It sounds like you have had Chronic fatigue syndrome.
I would advise you to see your primary care doctor for a physical check-up to rule out any medical condition that may be the root cause of your cfs symptoms.
Certainly, CFS may affect your memory at times; but your memory will not deteriorate due to CFS.
You are only 23 year old. If you are physically fine, your memory will be fine.
If you are worried about your memory and experience stress
from life bow, you may try stress reduction techniques and Cognitive-behavior therapy for your condition.
I would advise you to see a psychotherapist to express and process your feelings and thoughts and get advice and support WEEKLY. A combination of psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy are considered to be effective to treat Depression and anxiety
. Cognitive-behvaior therapy (CBT) will work for depression and anxiety.
You may ask your doctor for a psychologist/psychotherapist that you can work with weekly.
Also, a heart-healthy diet like Omega 3 fatty acid may improve your brain functioning and memory. Focus on fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Choose low-fat protein sources, such as fish, lean meat and skinless poultry. Hydrate yourself during daytime. Get plenty of calcium and vitamin D in food or supplements.
Physical activity increases blood flow to your whole body, including your brain. This may help improve your memory.
In addition, yoga, biofeedback, acupuncture, massage therapy, meditation
, and deep breathing exercises may be helpful to improve your brain functioning.
Other recommendations are:
Avoid use of alcohol and drugs.
Sleep in complete darkness and try to be out in bright light during the day.
Spend time in nature weekly
Have pleasurable activities with friends and family.
Choose to listen to sounds that have positive effects on your mood.
Please let me know if you have more questions or I have overlooked any. Warm regards,
