A poll of more than 10,000 13- to 18-year-olds revealed that 3% reported experiencing extreme fatigue lasting at least three months. Of those who reported prolonged fatigue, more than 50% have encountered severe or very severe problems in school, family or social areas, and just 14% had been treated for emotional or behavioral disorders in the previous year. The findings appear in the American Journal of Psychiatry.
