Publisher Description

Introduction Young people with chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) experience overwhelming fatigue for at least 6 months and a range of additional symptoms, including cognitive impairment, ongoing sore throat, tender glands, aching muscles, joint pain, headaches, unrefreshing sleep and fatigue after exercise (Afari and Buchwald 2003, Garralda and Rangel 2004, Jason et al 2006, Turnbull et al 2007). CFS/ME is more prevalent among girls (Rimes et al 2007) and it occurs in approximately 0.2% of young people (Jordan et al 2006). To date, the literature has shown that CFS/ME disrupts participation in the academic, social and functional activities of young people and adults (Hughes 2009).
