Myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) or chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a long-term condition that causes persistent fatigue (exhaustion) that doesn’t go away with sleep or rest and affects everyday life. It most commonly affects the nervous and immune systems of a patient. According to a study by the Japan ME Association, there are approximately 300,000 people living with ME/CFS in Japan.
Chronic fatigue syndrome, which is characterized by extreme exhaustion that does not improve with rest or sleep and lingers for months or even years, is more prevalent in women than in men. Symptoms of the disorder include pain, sensitivity to light and sound, and cognitive difficulties. At this time, there is no cure for CFS. The symptoms of each individual patient can differ; therefore, treatment varies. However, there are home remedies and lifestyle changes which can help to alleviate your symptoms. Limiting or eliminating your caffeine intake will help you sleep better and ease your insomnia. Furthermore, psychological counselling and physical therapy can assist with treating your symptoms.
Patients who suffer from CFS need to have frequent support from their doctors and family. Solve.Care will make this possible with Care.Wallet. Care.Wallet is not just a simple app, it can be configured to gather all the needed components for the comfortable and effective treatment, patient support and tools to manage CFS worldwide.
Configuring the Care.Wallet for CFS can help provide the continuity of care that patients suffering from CFS require. The “How Are You Feeling Today” Care.Card (HAYFT) can be used by physicians to help monitor a patient’s state every day. With a couple of simple records from the patient, the doctor will be better informed about the patient’s health condition and adjust or advise their treatment.
Care.Wallet will simplify the process of choosing a new doctor, all the doctors in the system will be already verified and the patient can find relevant information about the new doctor. Our transportation solution will help patients get to their appointments, regardless of where they’re located, making the process simpler and easier for all.
