I'm confused about the repeated reference to "recovery" in this article. Does it mean full recovery, or pacing so well that symptoms are eliminated? If XMRV proves to be cause and ME/CFS/XAND the effect/disease with which not all with XMRV become ill, is this saying one can fully recover from the disease while never getting rid of the cause?
Thanks for the reference to this article Jenny. It was helpful in that I am currently experiencing, thanks to a change in my pain med and specialized physical therapy, a lot less pain and have been increasing my activity level, probably too much. I know you gave a bit of a disclaimer. I'm wondering if you saw contradiction in it... Or is it just me? It said graduated exercise therapy was not good in that the goal is to continually increase activity to an optimum level, but also said pacing, if done well, will bring recovery and activity to an optimum level. What am I not getting here?
Resting, within, at least : )
