    I don't see this site mentioned often, but the NIH Genetic and Rare Diseases Information Center site on CFS is pretty terrible, notably the treatment section.
    You can leave feedback using the link at the bottom of the page that says 'Suggest an Update'. I told them they should probably update this page to reflect the AHRQ addendum findings regarding the poor quality of the evidence for CBT/GET.

    Tired of hearing this nonsense. Prolonged lack of exercise is the main thing that has led to an improvement for me, and I would encourage everyone to try it.

    So, Patients should become more active, but they should not overexert themselves. Do they not realise that people with this illness often do just about what their bodies are capable of doing? Not way too little (it's human nature to do things) and not too much (it's often painfully clear when something is too much)

    And, i have a heart rate of 140 beats per minute when i am just standing in the kitchen. Sitting up my heart rate i usually about 100. I am limiting the standing up part to avoid crashes.
    So maybe, just maybe, i can't do 30 minutes of exercise without overexerting myself. :rolleyes:
