|Chronic mountain sickness (CMS) is characterized by polycythemia and severe hypoxemia, which is reversible upon descent from high altitudes. Hematologic, neurologic, cardiac and respiratory symptoms are manifestations of the disease. The most common symptoms are bone and muscle pain, headaches, dizziness, dyspnea, insomnia, tinnitus, mental fatigue, and a loss of appetite. The severity of the condition increases with advancing age. CMS is a syndrome resulting from the loss of human adaptation to high altitude and can occur in permanent residents residing in this environment.
