A range of other symptoms are typically present, such as muscle or joint pain, headaches, concentration difficulties and sleeping problems. It is often triggered by a virus or adverse life event. Multiple factors are likely to be involved in the maintenance of symptoms and these will vary across individuals. This talk will focus on two related areas that have been investigated in relation to chronic fatigue syndrome. Research investigating emotion processing and stress reactivity in people with CFS / ME will be described and treatment implications discussed." Missed the July Conference but maybe it's one to keep an eye on for next year.
