Marina Shares struggle with Illness
Pop star Marina, formerly known as Marina and the Diamonds, opened up recently about her battle with chronic fatigue syndrome. In a heartfelt post on social media, the singer expressed her struggle to remember what it feels like to be truly healthy. Chronic fatigue syndrome is a complex disorder that can cause long-term fatigue and other symptoms that can significantly impact daily life.
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), also known as myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), is a debilitating disorder that affects around 17 million people worldwide. It is still not entirely understood, but it is thought to be linked to a combination of factors such as viral infections, immune system problems, and hormonal imbalances. What is clear is that it can significantly impact a person’s life, causing extreme fatigue, sleep disorders, pain, and a range of other symptoms that can vary from person to person.
Marina shared that she has been working with a functional medicine practitioner to achieve better health and well-being.
