    Nope, and the pills and drinks maybe doing more harm than good.

    I wish I had the answers but unfortunately I'm in the same boat as you. There doesn't seem to be any good treatments for fatigue.

    This might not be applicable to your situation, but I recently started doing at home trigger point massages and they’ve been massively helpful for my CFS and most of my other pains/symptoms. if you haven’t looked into trigger points before they may be the key for you too! (You can look through the trigger point therapy workbook by Clair Davies free online - Most doctors never mention trigger points or tell you how to deal with the widespread and seemingly unrelated fatigue/pain that builds up from muscle pain, but just pressing on certain places can make you feel so much better if you’re dealing with a similar situation!

    My docs are considering an ADHD stimulant to help with my CFS if I pass a cardiologist work up. There’s some initial research that looks decent on ADHD stimulants for CFS symptoms.
