Chronic Fatigue Syndrome - Treatment Overview

(continued)

Treatment if the condition gets worse

The good news about CFS is that it rarely gets worse over time. In some people, it goes away in 1 or 2 years. Others have periods of relatively good health followed by periods of severe symptoms and great difficulty. Relapses are not unusual. Continue to see your doctor periodically to monitor changes in your condition.

What to think about

Although the cause of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is not well understood, the fatigue is real and can make day-to-day activities difficult. As you work toward regaining your strength and energy, don't go too fast. Aim for a gradual return to your previous level of activity.
