ME, PVFS and CFS - case studies

M.E. – MYALGIC ENCEPHALOMYELITIS

P.V.F.S. – POST VIRAL FATIGUE SYNDROME

C.F.S. – CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME

There are case study notes but these will not be released as they relate to a specific ME support group and are therefore identifiable.

My observations are that the condition is highly variable, reluctantly diagnosed by the medical profession, and in their eyes, without a blunderbuss pill, difficult to treat.

I have had a positive response with the minimum of Bowen moves, but I have also had negative responses, which bordered on the accusative.

Because of the frustration in dealing with an outwardly healthy person, low level abuse such as bullying is not uncommon. Though this may only be the sort of “pull yourself together, its all in your mind” type it is not something one wants to hear when in a weakened state.

Physically they have reduced muscle tone, wastage of some muscles, and possible impairment of the lymph drainage system due to lack of muscular action. To rebuild up from this base line is difficult, particularly where the energy levels are depleted.

Any improvement is slow, with remission onset time being highly variable from patient to patient. This adds to the uncertainty of prescribing a definitive treatment. Each patient is unique; there are only generalised patterns.
