We specialise in chronic fatigue spectrum illnesses. These cause severe disability and low quality of life. They cause symptoms such as severe brainfog and neurocognitive issues, mood problems, unrestful sleep, problems thinking and can include migrating pain and other hard to define symptoms. These conditions have now been proven to involve immune system dysfunction and mitochondrial problems (our cell energy powerhouses) and are not purely ‘mental disorders’ although they do involve the brain.
Chronic pain can have many forms and causes including nerve pain, pain from an injury, inflammation pain, or a combination of central nervous system pain and pain in a specific part of the body. Chronic pain doesn’t just involve the sensation of pain but has a profound effect on the brain’s ability to regulate our mood, anxiety levels, sleep and enjoyment of life.
