Does The Person From Whom You’re Taking Advice Believe ME/CFS Is Neurological … Or Psychological?

The differences in opinion (as to whether ME/CFS is physical or psychological) causes a lot of controversy in the ME/CFS community.

Recent research discoveries may help in settling these differences (more…) but for now, there are two distinct approaches: that either Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is psychological… or that it is indeed a physical, neurological illness.

 

So when you pick up a book, or are referred to a specialist, or when you see your doctor, it is important to find out how the author / specialist / doctor regards your illness.

If you have Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, or ICD-Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ICD-CFS) (all neurological) as opposed to Chronic Fatigue or Fatigue Syndrome (psychological), then seeing a health professional, or reading books by authors who believe that the illness is real, physical, and biological is likely to be much more helpful for you.

ME/CFS - does your doctor view it as a neurological or psychiatric condition? Be extremely cautious with any advice you might receive from those who do not believe that Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and ICD-CFS is real, physical, and neurological. The advice could potentially be harmful to your recovery.
