Have been picked up by my local chronic fatigue team in St Albans but they can’t start treating me till the end of January..... I need some help ASAP as I can’t wait till January with he state I am in

I came across the optimum Health Clinic in London and was wondering Ifanyone had been there and if it’s worth the money

Many thanks

Wow. Call me controversial but I’m not convinced your reply is supportive! I have ME/CFS (one and the same) but unfortunately for us, perception / ignorance is we all have mental health issues. Categorically wrong. I’m not going to go into my circumstances on this forum as this isn’t about me but suggest if you can’t be supportive then don’t answer.

Brenda - to be diagnosed with ME/CFS you will go through a series of tests and be diagnosed by exclusion. There is no set test for this condition unfortunately. Once you have been referred on you will speak to a specialist to understand your symptoms. They will and can only look at alternative remedies as there is no medication for this. They look at Mindfulness courses which is Cognative Behavioural Therapy which helps you ‘cope’ with the symptoms.

My best advice now is to sit tight. It will have taken time to get to the point of an appointment, it really won’t be long now. Pace yourself and conserve energy, if you can so something sitting instead of standing then do it (ironing?).

If you are trying to work and you get paid sick leave I would consider taking time away. I was off for 6 months having never been off in 15yrs. Please don’t think your referral will be the answer, it’s only the beginning of a long road.
