Treating Symptoms

Even though there is so far no cure for either CFS or fibromyalgia, there are many ways to alleviate the symptoms of the two conditions. Treatments can reduce the effects of CFS and FM, bring greater stability, lessen suffering, and may lead to a higher functional level.

This section describes treatment options for the four most prominent symptoms of CFS and fibromyalgia:
  • Fatigue
  • Pain
  • Unrefreshing sleep
  • Cognitive problems (brain fog)
Many authorities believe that starting with sleep is often the best approach, so we will begin with that symptom, after discussing how your doctor can help you and how to create a treatment plan.
As you read through this section, you'll find that we believe that even though doctors and medications can help, your success in regaining control of your life will probably depend more on your willingness to adapt to CFS and/or FM than on anything a doctor does for you.
