Alcohol : How Badly Can It Affect Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Sufferers?


The’norm’ for several others. And poison if you’ve got CFS/PVFS/ME…

Unfortunately I didn’t realize what I had been doing to myself.

I did not discover how badly alcohol could influence the severity with the CFS…

Now I really don’t touch alcohol in any respect, and have not done for a few years now. I’d rather watch at least several hours at your day instead of being bedridden for weeks on end because of alcoholic beverage!

Because if you have CFS/M. E., you should be pouring mulch down your throat…


Ok – so that comparison might be just a little’dramatic’, however, you get exactly what I am talking about ?


You see once you have CFS/M. E., you’re very likely to come up with **alcohol intolerance**…

The tiniest alcoholic beverage – even a tiny bit,

Can send you into a relapse – since I learnt the hard way many years ago.

Having an alcoholic beverage and was enough to trick the seriousness of my own PVFS/CFS on the edge and put me indefinitely.

Each time a **ordinary ** man gets drunk they might feel a bit bad for a single day or so, after which it, they are straight back to’normal’, bouncing straight back and forth to go. However, if a individual using M.E./ / CFS gets drunk or even offers just 1 beverage, they’re likely to feel like’death warmed up’ for what seems like an eternity!!!

Personally, I really don’t actually like alcohol much therefore that I don’t miss this. But even if I did,

I have seen that alcohol no longer makes me feel how it was used to before I had CFS…

Having a drink today feels like I am feeding myself poison, and my body reacts accordingly – i.e. a flareworse, a relapse – and now I suffer the results for a longlong time afterwards.

Unfortunately, many people CFS sufferers are simply not strong enough to resist the poisons of alcohol.

So for almost all folks, it’s unfortunately true of taking it, or becoming much, much worse.

As doctor Shepherd writes in his book’managing M.E.’:

“Many men and women who previously enjoyed and tolerated routine usage of alcohol without any unwanted side outcomes, now find that even tiny levels make them extremely unwell.”

— p214, Doctor Shepherd,’Living With M.E.’ —

Therefore, in the event that you own M.E./ / CFS, it is probable you might have developed an intolerance to alcohol.

Therefore, if you are taking antidepressants, it’s definitely something to bear at heart.

Having CFS/ME is sometimes a very lonely and catastrophic experience and depression can be considered a very serious and serious symptom for some CFS sufferers. So that the last thing you need will be to choose substances which cause you to feel much worse.

And you know what?

So it’s not a great situation to drink in case you’re miserable!

And according to Dr Shepherd, most victims regrettably do turn to alcohol…

But alcohol isn’t a answer. Apart from probably causing you to feel depressed, you might also develop an alcohol addiction!

Moreover, if you **have been ** alcohol intolerant, then it’d make it substantially harder for you to recuperate from M.E./ / CFS (virtually impossible even), as you continue putting alcohol on the human system.

Whenever you think of how badly a CFS sufferer may be affected by **one** alcoholic drink, then how badly could alcohol be affecting you in the event you should be drinking more???

So there you go – a whole list of reasons why you might think hard about drinking anything slightly alcoholic as you have CFS/M. E.

Though you might not be alcohol intolerant once you have recovered in CFS/M. E., it might well be a big culprit for preventing you from **recovering** from your CFS/M. E while you still contain it.

I didn’t know more about the probable consequences of alcohol when I first had Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome…

… and I suffered the effects. My disease got worse. Much worse. And I was just using a couple of drinks now and again! So I hope this article arms with enough info for you to make an informed decision about alcohol in any event.
