Chronic fatigue is not ‘All in your head!’

It is difficult to understand how people with so called ‘chronic fatigue syndrome’ navigate through life ,especially those who are erroneously told things like: Its all in your head. you should consult a psychiatrist; you need to get more exercise to gain more energy’ etc
After years of treating the syndrome as a psychological disorder, leading health organisations now recognize it as a serious long-term illness caused by a disruption in how the immune system responds to infections or stress!!
The syndrome, experts say shares many characteristics with auto-immune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis but without apparent signs of tissue damage.
The long standing advice to exercise your way out of it is now recognized as not only ineffective but counter productive.
