Flare-ups and relapse

1.11.15 Agree with the person how to adjust their physical activity during a flare-up or relapse. This should include:

  • providing access to review and support from a physiotherapist in an ME/CFS specialist team
  • stabilising their symptoms by reducing physical activity to within their current energy limits
  • only once symptoms stabilise and the person feels able to resume physical activity, establishing a new physical activity baseline.

1.11.16 Advise people with ME/CFS after a flare-up that the time it takes to return to the level of physical activity they had before varies from person to person.
