Trusted professionals have been trained to help you. They won't judge or condemn you. They realize that chronic fatigue syndrome aches and pains are real.
Eliminate activities or foods that aggravate your chronic fatigue syndrome. Avoid stress and anxiety, the most common triggers of chronic fatigue syndrome. Remember simple illnesses like bronchitis, a cold, hepatitis, an intestinal bug, and mononucleosis can result in chronic fatigue syndrome flares.
