Program Description

Fatigue is one of the most common reasons people seek medical advice. BODYWATCH looks at the mounting evidence that a wide range of subtle physiological and psychological factors-- hypoglycemia, PMS and Epstein-Barr virus among them -- may cause chronic fatigue. The program examines the latest research on fatigue, talks to sufferers, physicians and support groups and explores the possibility that some causes of chronic fatigue may be untreatable.
