Acupuncture in the treatment of post viral fatigue syndrome – a case report

    This case report concerns the treatment of post viral fatigue (chronic fatigue syndrome) with electroacupuncture. This condition is particularly difficult to treat whether using conventional or complementary therapy. Whilst the treatment did not cure the patient, it appears to have facilitated her return to work and markedly improved her symptoms. There are few publications on acupuncture treatment of this condition and the approach used here has not been reported previously.
