6 responses to “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome upgraded to disease”

  1. Thank you for your counsel to clinicians to listen to patients and choose to believe them. As a clinician who also has Chronic Fatigue (post viral illness in my 20s), I have been on the receiving end of the ‘disbelief’ from clinicians. It has a profoundly negative effect. One is very aware that is not a visible disease, unless you live with someone with this disease, or suffer with it yourself.

  2. Thank you so much, Dr. Arseneau, for giving us such useful tools for engaging with these patients. The resources are excellent, the summary of evidence for supplements and other therapies is extraordinarily helpful. Empowered with these resources I can in turn empower my patients and start a more therapeutic journey.

  3. When will we be able to convince the Labour market and Employers about the Science behind this debilitating condition?

    Thanks Ric for this great and complex topic, you’re teaching as usual; simple and clear. It really makes it easier to follow and to apply in our practice.

  5. Thank you for this amazing piece. I find the mixture of information on your approach and practice, the evidence and guidelines, and especially the links to tools very powerful and useful. Well done, and thank you!

  6. Very validating for someone suffering from this very debilitating and misunderstood problem. This is the first step–acknowledgement that there is indeed a physical problem to address, even though it cannot be verified by diagnostics. Next, is the sharing of information and suggestions for treatment that sufferers have found to be helpful.
