Chronic Fatigue

Symptoms of Chronic Fatigue can often worsen as a result of stress

The symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS/ME) are numerous.  The main symptom is feeling extremely tired and generally unwell.  However, symptoms and the severity of these symptoms varies from day to day and sometimes during the day.  The symptoms of CFS/ME can include insomnia, muscle or joint pain, headaches, a sore throat or sore glands, problems thinking, concentrating or remembering.  Sometimes flu like symptoms or feeling dizzy or sick and a fast or irregular heartbeat.  

Often exercise can unfortunately make the symptoms of CFS/ME worse.


The symptoms of CFS/ME can be classed as mild, moderate or severe.  With mild symptoms everyday activities are possible but are often undertaken with difficulty.  Rest can often be required in spare time as opposed to being able to go out and socialise. Moderate symptoms may mean difficulty in moving around easily and in addition carrying out everyday tasks.  It may prove difficult to keep working or continue with education.  Rest may be required on a regular basis and there may be problems sleeping at night.  Severe symptoms may mean that very little can be undertaken on a daily basis.  Even such tasks as brushing your teeth can prove difficult and with severe symptoms you may become housebound.

Whilst it is not known what causes CFS/ME there are various theories ranging from viral infections such as glandular fever to bacterial infections such as pneumonia.  In addition immune system problems, mental health issues including stress and emotional trauma.  CFS/ME is common in some families and is therefore also being linked to genes.  

Whilst currently there is no cure or approved treatment for myalgic encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME).  Certain 

symptoms can be treated and this is where hypnosis can often help.  Whilst Hypnocares would never claim that every CFS/ME sufferer will be symptom free following hypnotherapy, treating the symptoms often provides some relief for sufferers.
