ME & Chronic Fatigue
CFS/ME is a condition of long-term disabling tiredness (fatigue). Most people with CFS/ME also have one or more other symptoms such as muscular pains, joint pains, disturbed sleep patterns, poor concentration, headaches, etc. The cause is not known.
Conventional treatments offered are usually a programme of graded exercise,
cognitive behaviour therapy, and 'pacing'. However it has been shown
that these conditions can respond extremely well to high quality diet
and supplements, indeed the woman who trained me successfully treated
her own severe ME using diet 15 years ago and set about sharing with
as many people as possible the health benefits of excellent diet.
The onset of symptoms can be fairly sudden (over a few days or so), or more gradual. The most common main symptom is persistent fatigue (tiredness) that is often made worse by activity. This is called 'post-exertional malaise'. However, the post-exertional malaise may not develop for several hours or more following the activity. It may even develop on the following day.
In addition to fatigue, the following symptoms are common:
• Mental ('cognitive') difficulties such poor concentration,
reduced attention span, poor memory for recent events, difficulty to
plan or organise your thoughts, difficulty 'finding the right words'
to say, sometimes feeling disorientated.
