According to a new study from the researchers at the Institute of psychiatry, psychology and neuroscience at King’s College London, suicide in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome is 6 times greater than that in the general population.
Chronic fatigue syndrome also known as CFS is oftentimes referred to as Myalgic encephalitis (ME).
This is a significant disorder in which patients present with persistent fatigue and many other symptoms such as pain in the muscles and joints, anxiety, apprehension, headaches, muscle weakness, lack of concentration and even sore throats.
In my practice, I see patients with CFS and other conditions such as fibromyalgia on a daily basis. We have unique treatment protocols to help these patients. Many of them do exceptionally well, have improved quality of life, and their need for medication is decreased.
If you or a loved one suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, or similar conditions, please consider contacting our acupuncture practice in Davie, Boca, or Pompano Beach for a complimentary consultation. Or visit us on the web at:
