There is no treatment for CFS
itself, but many of its symptoms can be treated. A good relationship with your
doctor is important. That's because the two of you will need to work together to find
a combination of medicines and behavior changes that will help you get better.
Some trial and error may be needed, because no single combination of
treatments works for everyone.
Home treatment is very important.
You may need to change your daily schedule, learn better sleep habits, and
use regular gentle movement or exercise to fight fatigue. Even at times when you have more energy, keep a low-key pace throughout each day. Rest often.
Living with CFS can be as much a mental health challenge as it is a physical one. Take steps to avoid getting caught
in a cycle of frustration, anger, and depression. Learning to cope with your
symptoms and talking to others who have CFS can help. So can working with a counselor.
