I discovered a long time ago that sleep deprivation helped my CFS. I used to have a job where I worked all day and then once in awhile would have to work all night. If I was having a bad day with my CFS, I found that around 2 AM the symptoms starting subsiding and by an hour later they were completely gone. It was predictable and a great relief to me but unfortunately after sleeping the next day they all returned. Has sleep deprivation ever helped your symptoms?
