Successful recovery of an Australian Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFIDS/CFS) sufferer : Able to swim and take bike rides in Fiji ! ( 2015 report)
Hi Dr Nash,
My trip to Fiji went well, thank you, with only slight fluctuation on my return to Australia.
I took care to eat appropriately, and got plenty of rest. During my time in Fiji, I was able to go swimming and take leisurely bike rides without any severe extended fatigue, nor did the heat affect me in any way. I did receive a small gash to my foot from some coral however, I managed to keep it free from infection and has healed fully, which is a great response I think.
The severity of fatigue has of course become much more manageable, and I feel much more treatable, in maintaining my meds, diet and really taking rest I am noticing the capacity I have to continue to recover.
Again, the reduction in headaches alone has been an absolute blessing, as well as the length/severity. The blinding headaches which were incapacitating and were experienced daily, are scaled back to maybe 3 really severe days in the last month.
Heart palpitations have steadied in severity and quantity, with the occurrence being now an abnormality, rather than the normality it used to be.
