Chronic fatigue syndrome
Written from firsthand experience about the hardships, frustrations, and uncertainties facing sufferers of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), this book is a useful and optimistic guide to a little-understood and frequently trivialized disease. Often labeled as being "all in the mind" or "the yuppie flu," CFS is a devastating condition that afflicts increasing numbers of people throughout the world. The current thoughts on the causes, symptoms, and diagnosis of CFS are discussed, as are strategies for coping with the illness and treating its symptoms. Also provided are case histories that give insight into others' experiences, as well as suggestions for diet, exercise, meditation, and alternative medicine.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 182-186) and index.
