Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS/ME) affects around 250,000 people in the UK, and an estimated one million in the USA. With a characteristic profile of severe exhaustion, flu-like symptoms, and unrefreshing sleep, it has no cure, but often improves with treatment and self-help. This book, by an expert who herself experienced chronic fatigue, presents the latest thinking on the condition, along with tried and tested advice on how to manage it.
