How to Treat

MYALGIC ENCEPHALOMYELITIS
Chronic fatigue syndrome
Cathy Stephenson & Rose Silvester


Myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome is a common, debilitating and costly disease. Diagnosing and managing complex chronic conditions such as this is not easy with a 15-minute consultation, but this article, by Cathy Stephenson and Rose Silvester, provides a framework of evidence-based information for GPs working with patients with ME/CFS.
