Unfortunately my brother has been diagnosed with CFS he's been off work almost 6 months is now suffering depression (tbh not sure if depression could have caused CFS) its so severe he's gone from cycling/running/ swimming/football/training his son for triathlons to not even being able to walk round the block.
His job is pretty stressful, they are being very supportive but I think stress could have caused CFS.
Its playing havoc with his family life children are getting confused, its a real pressure/worry on his partner, and for the rest of the extended family (sister, dad and me) my sister lives in the same city as him and is helping as much as possible she also has her family etc my dad and I are 200 miles away.
Just as he feels slightly better he falls even further, he's had almost every test under the sun for all kinds of things to rule out other causes etc.
As I've no real experience of it and we live 200 miles apart I would like to hear if any of you have/are/know anything about CFS I talk with him everyday on way home from work and truly wish I had an answer for him...
Many thanks in advance
