“The Royal Free London fatigue service provides assessment and treatment for people experiencing fatigue symptoms. Fatigue can present in different ways and the team is involved with the care and rehabilitation for people with:
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME)
- Post viral fatigue
- Fatigue due to other health conditions
“Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is also known as myalgic encephalitis (ME). The extreme fatigue brought about by this condition is persistent, often overwhelming, and is associated with other symptoms, such as aching muscles, sore throats, deteriorated short-term memory and an increased sensitivity to noise and light.
“We do not know the cause of CFS/ME, but the Royal Free London fatigue service can address the factors that cause fatigue symptoms to persist, and reduce their impact on everyday life.”
