Exercise & Oxygen Shortage in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

New research underscores the fact of exercise intolerance in chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) and helps us understand why it exists.

When you exercise, your muscle cells need more oxygen than they do when you're at rest. However, previous studies have shown that the bodies of people with ME/CFS don't distribute oxygen like they should, leaving muscles exhausted and unable to perform.
