    Chronic Fatigue Syndrome - What Increases Your Risk

    People who have chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) are generally 25 to 45 years of age. Women are more likely to have CFS.

    CFS is rare in children. It may occur in teens, especially young teenage girls. Unlike adults, teens are more likely to develop CFS after having a flu-like illness.
