Support with Tiredness and fatigue

Need more help?

If your tiredness doesn’t go away it’s important to see your GP to rule out medical causes. Your GP may suggest a referral to an NHS Lothian service that helps people affected by extreme tiredness and fatigue. This is called the ME/CFS rehabilitation service.

ME stands for myalgic encephalomyelitis, otherwise known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). This is a long-term condition with a wide range of symptoms. The most common is extreme tiredness. There’s more information on ME/CFS here.
