A Message About Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome’s pain is tied closely to the poor quality sleep that the individual is suffering from. While exercise is helpful for the patient, they do not have the energy ability to overcome the pain and fatigue to push at getting the exercise through. It becomes a vicious cycle of pain, rest, fatigue and strain.

In addressing CFS muscle pain, PRP injections can help to alleviate the muscle aches and pain. In the wholistic approach to the problem, the sleep quality has to be addressed too. There may be medications to improve the sleep architecture without using sleeping pills. In fact, sleeping pills often do not help the CFS sufferers.
