Local notes

This book is focuses on strategies to improve health, and unlike other books available it does not cover causes or controversies about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or ME.

In addition to persistent and abnormal tiredness, common symptoms of the condition are muscle pain, headaches, sleep disturbance and loss of concentration, as well as a host of other problems. With energy levels fluctuating wildly – the ‘boom and bust’ pattern typical of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and ME – you may feel stuck in a downward spiral of setbacks and relapse. This is the cycle that Fighting Fatigue aims to not only break, but also use to support recovery.

Containing diagrams, summaries and printed in a large font, this book is suitable for all reading levels.
