Here we analyse fMRI correlations to directly test connectivity within and from the brainstem. Resting and task functional MRI (fMRI) were acquired for 45 ME/CFS (Fukuda criteria) and 27 healthy controls...

Publication date: 2019Source: International Review of Neurobiology, Volume 147Author(s): Jessie S.M. Chan, Siu-Man Ng, Lai-Ping Yuen, Cecilia L.W. ChanAbstractChronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is often overlooked, has unclear etiology and no effective cure except some symptomatic treatments. Additionally, most people with CFS do not seek medical attention. Qigong exercise, an ancient Eastern body-mind-spirit practice, has been long practiced in Chinese communities and may powerfully trigger the self-healing process. Using full baseline data (n = 1409), the average Hong Kong CFS respondent was found to be female, mar...

CONCLUSIONS: Exercise therapy probably has a positive effect on fatigue in adults with CFS compared to usual care or passive therapies. The evidence regarding adverse effects is uncertain. Due to limited evidence it is difficult to draw conclusions about the comparative effectiveness of CBT, adaptive pacing or other interventions. All studies were conducted with outpatients diagnosed with 1994 criteria of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or the Oxford criteria, or both. Patients diagnosed using other criteria may experience different effects. PMID: 31577366 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Today, Cochrane publishes an amended version of the Review,' Exercise therapy for chronic fatigue syndrome. ’ In the last nine months, this Cochrane Review has been modified by the review ’s authors and evaluated by independent peer reviewers and editors. It now places more emphasis on the limited applicability of the evidence to definitions of myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) used in the included studies, the long-term effects of exercise on symptoms of fatigue, and acknowledges the limitations of the evidence about harms that may occur.Cochrane ’s Editor-in-Chief, Dr Karla Soa...
