What conditions can seem like chronic fatigue syndrome?

ANSWER

Many chronic fatigue syndrome symptoms -- deep tiredness, muscle aches, sore throat -- happen with other conditions, too. Chronic fatigue syndrome can look a lot like “mono” (mononucleosis), Lyme disease, lupus, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, sleep disorders, or depression.
