Management of chronic fatigue syndrome: case study.


1. Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a complex disorder marked by incapacitating fatigue of uncertain etiology which has resulted in a least a 50% reduction in activity and is of at least 6 months' duration. 2. Definitive diagnosis can be very challenging. Because no markers objectively identify the presence of CFS, diagnosis depends heavily on the presence of subjective complaints. 3. The current philosophy of CFS management is to use a multidisciplinary approach incorporating these rehabilitation goals: restore a sense of self efficacy and control; gradually increase physical activity; and decrease the restrictions imposed by CFS.
