INFECTIOUS DISEASE

Viral Illnesses

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a complicated disorder characterized by profound fatigue that doesn't improve with bed rest and may worsen with physical or mental activity. Of all chronic illnesses, CFS is one of the most mysterious. Unlike infections, it has no clear cause. Unlike conditions such as diabetes or anemia, there's essentially nothing to measure. And unlike conditions such as heart disease, there are relatively few treatment options.

Treatment

There's no specific treatment for CFS. In general, doctors aim to relieve symptoms by using a combination of the following steps:

  • Lifestyle changes. Your doctor may encourage you to slow down and to avoid excessive physical and psychological stress. This may save your energy for essential activities at home or work and help you cut back on less important activities.

  • Gradual but steady exercise. Often with the help of a physical therapist, you may be advised to begin a graded exercise program in which physical activity gradually increases. This can help prevent or decrease the muscle weakness caused by prolonged inactivity. In addition, your energy level can often improve significantly.

  • Treatment of psychiatric problems. Doctors can treat problems often related to CFS, such as depression, with medication, behavior therapy — learning to change your behavior to reduce the symptoms of a certain disease or condition — or a combination of the two. If you're depressed, medications such as tricyclic antidepressants and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) may help. Tricyclic antidepressants include amitriptyline (Elavil), desipramine (Norpramin, Pertofrane) and nortriptyline (Aventyl, Pamelor). SSRIs include fluoxetine (Prozac, Sarafem), paroxetine (Paxil), sertraline (Zoloft) and citalopram (Celexa).

  • Treatment of existing pain. Acetaminophen (Tylenol, others) or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin and ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others) may be helpful for headaches, muscle pain and joint pain associated with CFS.

  • Treatment of allergy-like symptoms. Antihistamines such as fexofenadine (Allegra) and loratadine (Claritin) and decongestants that contain pseudoephedrine (Sudafed, Dimetapp) may relieve allergy-like symptoms such as runny nose.

  • Treatment of low blood pressure (hypotension). The drug fludrocortisone (Florinef), a form of cortisone that retains fluid in the body and raises blood pressure, has been studied as a treatment for CFS. However, the use of this drug, either alone or in combination with hydrocortisone, another corticosteroid, has not been proved to be effective in the treatment of CFS.

Some medications can cause adverse reactions or side effects that are worse than the original symptoms of CFS. Talk to your doctor before starting any treatment for CFS.

Not everyone with CFS benefits from any or all of the common treatment options. Research shows that both gradually increasing (graded) exercise and behavior therapy can work for some, but not all, people.
