Re: Exercise and CFS - please reply
The only accurate (or at least brief) answer to your question regarding exercise and CFS is "it depends". For patients who are less seriously affected, exercise may be helpful -- as long as it does not increase the number and severity of symptoms. For others (eg. those whose capacity has been reduced to less than 50 percent of their pre-illness activity level), exercise beyond that required for the basic activities of daily living is rarely helpful. If you feel worse after exercising, and especially if it takes you more than a day to recover, you are doing too much.
