Managing anxiety & improving fatigue symptoms through GET & CBT Nick's Story
If you have severe CFS you need Vitality360. They are real subject matter experts and helped me more than anyone else
It started with a bad case of flu in Dec 2017. I'd moved down south for a new and demanding job and had been doing a lot of travelling. I was enjoying the new role and life but was certainly ready for the Christmas break and had for some time been having trouble sleeping.
Initially I had a week off work then went back but two weeks after that I started to feel flu like symptoms again so had a couple more days off. I was back for the last week of work before Christmas but managed to see it out as it was only a short week. I was feeling extremely worn out and glad to get up to Mums for the Christmas break I continued to sleep very badly over the break and started to get tired quickly during the day after a certain amount of exertion.
I visited the GP a few times over that period and was advised that it can take up to two months to get over flu so just to rest up.

Having direct access to and support of a highly experienced real subject matter expert was very supportive. I am a senior medical doctor and having acquired a large amount of knowledge in nearly 20 years of living with CFS, I have only ever met two people who know more about my condition than I do (and that includes so called specialists). One of these two people was my Vitality360 Clinician Beverly Knops. It is difficult to express how important and helpful it was to me to know that I was receiving support from a proper expert.
CFS/ME recovery case story - From walking to jogging
The NHS had nothing to offer, luckily our GP had heard of Vitality360 and suggested we contact them (privately). The diagnosis kept changing but the symptoms were always the same, so a diagnosis was irrelevant. Vitality 360 were a guiding beacon at a very isolated, confusing time; somehow we never felt desperate, just confused, with nowhere to turn to, until we met Vitality360 expert clinician, Charlie.

CFS/M.E recovery case story - Getting back to work, completing a 5K run and having a healthy pregnancy
Final year was always going to be difficult, but when I was diagnosed with Post-Viral Fatigue, these difficulties took on a whole new form. Rather than studying in the few hours I had between lectures, fitness classes and hockey sessions, I found I had hit a brick wall and found myself too drained, exhausted and dizzy to contemplate getting out of bed.
Case Story - Being able to drive again
When I first met Vitality360 Physiotherapist, I was off work with CFS and had been experiencing symptoms for over 6 months. I was spending much of my time indoors and felt physically and emotionally exhausted and defeated. Walking 5 minutes down the road would leave me out of breath and I was unable to read or even enjoy watching films as my concentration was so poor.
