Hi All -- Yesterday in The Daily Telegraph there was an article about ME (CFS) by Dr Charles Shepherd who is medical adviser to the ME Association but also has ME himself. If you get the chance to read it -- it is really interesting -- he explains that his technique for dealing with it is "pacing" -- a technique which involves listening to your body to find the right balance between rest and activity -- he goes swimming and walking but within the limits of what he can do (I also do these!) I believe that ME and Fibro are closely related (and may even be the same condition as lots of their symptoms overlap) and so the treatment of them is maybe similar. Do read it if you get the chance! xx
