“I’m tired all the time.” “I got sick and I never got better.” “This fatigue has lingered on and on.” Every practitioner has at least one patient like this. Could these vague symptoms be ME/CFS or Fibromyalgia? This event will help you understand the new ME/CFS criteria so you can properly diagnose and manage patients who may be suffering from this incapacitating illness. Dr. Lucinda Bateman, a noted international ME/CFS expert and a member of the national committee who designed the new criteria, will give ideas on how to work with patients to relieve their debilitating symptoms.

Following this activity, learners should be able to
• Identify the major presenting and overlapping features of ME/CFS and fibromyalgia and differentiate and diagnose between these symptoms;
• Based on recent studies, describe the impact of exercise on those with ME/CFS and fibromyalgia, including physical capacity, cognitive impairment and pain amplification;
• Incorporate strategies in your practice to help patients identify their activity tolerance and relapse threshold to better prevent and manage physical and mental symptoms;
• Appreciate how pain is experienced by patients across the illness spectrum and employ interventions to help patients manage their pain;
• Utilize effective interventions for identifying and treating sleep disorders for those with ME/CFS and fibromyalgia;
• Describe how orthostatic intolerance syndromes, including POTS, affect patients and identify strategies to improve symptoms;
• Effectively perform a bedside test to determine orthostatic intolerance without using an expensive tilt table procedure.
