Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
I posted my question at the wrong place - apologies!

Do you know of any support groups for CFS in SA? Also, do you have contact details of doctors working with CFS patients in Gauteng?

Kind regards

I feel sure I've had this question before --- I have no idea of whether such a group exists. CFS is still a highly controversial diagnosis, and many excellent doctors believe it is actually an emotional problem best dealt with by a sensible shrink, perhaps with CBT, whereas there's surprisingly little evidence that ANY form of physical diagnosis or treatmebnt actually helps sufferers
