How can a person with chronic fatigue syndrome get more energy?

I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome about 2 years ago and I have found a way to cope without pain. My biggest problem now is the fatigue.

    I would have 2 things checked…..your iron level and your thyroid. Both can cause severe fatigue.

    Other ideas include eating fruit for natural sugar as apposed to sugary foods. 10 minutes, 2 times a day of exercise can also help. It doesn't have to be a lot and you can work up to doing more than that if you want to.

    If you are not sleeping well at night, I would also ask your doctor about starting a low dose of Trazadone. It helped me greatly and I felt much better during the day.

    The biggest thing that helped me was regular chiropractic adjustments. I have Fibromyalgia (although you'd never know it now), spinal stenosis, High Blood Pressure, hypothyroidism and IBS. I also get chronic migraines. Chiropractic has improved my life 100%. I see my chiropractor 1 time a week and I virtually have no symtoms! I have been seeing a chiropractor for 15 months now.

    Hope all of this helps!
