The 2nd edition of my book "Diagnosis and Treatment of CFS and ME" is now available to buy. The 1st edition of this book was awarded a Highly Commended Certificate at the British Medical Association Book Awards in 2015 - please see British Medical Association Book Awards 2015

I have fully updated and revised the book for this 2nd edition. There are many new chapters and new content and a more accessible, easy-to-follow lay out, as explained below.

You can read the first chapter for free at CFS/ME book2look Note - this is the US version of this book [Orange Cover] but the contents are the same, with a few minor wording changes.

Summary of revisions, updates and new material

In essence, this is a new book! You will see some familiar material but there are new chapters, existing chapters have been updated, there is new material and there is a new layout too.

There are now 24 chapters and 11 appendices. The book is 436 pages long.

Two new key features are as follows:

  • The book is divided into 3 sections, being
    • The Introduction
    • The Theory
    • The Practical Guide as to how to get better

The Introduction covers some of the politics of CFS/ME and also the clinical picture. The Theory section covers the detail of the biology of what causes CFS/ME and The Practical section tells you what to do to feel better. For those with limited energy and brain fogginess, it is perfectly possible to 'skip' the first 2 sections and dive straight into the third section and start putting into practice immediately the 'tools of the trade' so that you can begin your road to recovery. Once you feel better, you can then go back to the first 2 sections and understand why you are feeling better!

  • Chapter Summaries

Each chapter has a chapter summary. Again this is useful for those who are severely fatigued and maybe have difficulty concentrating or who suffer with brain fog. The chapter summary pulls out the key points for you to keep in mind.

Both of these changes to layout are intended to make this book more 'CFS/ME friendly'. I have also made changes to paragraphing as I know that large chunks of writing can be daunting!

Stylistic note

Use of the first person singular in this book refers to me, Dr Sarah Myhill. One can assume that the medicine and biochemistry are mine, as edited by Craig Robinson, and that the classical and mathematical references are Craig’s.
