The Castle Dene Fatigue Clinic provides specialist intervention for patients with CFS/ME in the North East of England. Fatigue is a symptom that is becoming more and more commonly experienced due to our busy '24/7' lifestyles. We use pacing, fatigue management advice, graded exercise therapy where appropriate and sleep management advice, to support our patients. We aim to make you the expert in your condition and our sessions focus on education and advice regarding the condition and its presenting symptoms. We spend time looking at your current levels of function and the activities that you are required to participate in each day; education, family responsibilities, employment, hobbies and social activities. We aim for a collaborative approach, working together to develop a management plan that is both realistic and achievable.
