I am trying out a recovery method of resting until i feel better, as advised by Martha Kilcoyne in her book Defeat Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I am also trying out Dr.Myhill's approach with testing and supplements. The testing showed mito dysfunction amongst others. She also says to rest until you feel better, only then gently increasing activity and to get 9 hours sleep a night plus a sleep inthe day - much as Martha suggests. I am a bit worried that i will end up feeling great, but unable to DO anything at all. I am just wondering if anyone has seen good results with this method. In the past i was going until i felt ill and then stopping for a while and thebn going until i felt ill etc. At the moment its on;ly been a couple of weeks and i have noticed that i cant seem to stick to early bedtime -aiming for 9.30.Also i am no longer walking at all or pottering in the garden which i did very small amounts of every day. I actually seem to feel more tired and when i do attempt something it seems harder! Dr.Myhill says this is because i am still puishing beyond my body's limits ( she has assesed me at 30% on David Bells (dis)ability scale, although i graded myself higher (50%) Just throwing it open really as i keep doubting if it is the right way to go. On the other hand i dont have much else i can try! Any input gratefully accepted!
