Periods of intense symptoms (often called relapses, setbacks or flares) are a common and often demoralizing part of CFS. Besides creating additional pain and discomfort, they undermine efforts to gain control. Pacing offers an alternative. Matching activity to energy can reduce suffering, bring stability to life and minimize relapses. Dr. Bruce Campbell, executive director and founder of the CFIDS & Fibromyalgia Self-Help program, gave an overview of pacing, focusing on understanding limits and learning pacing strategies. He also described practical ways to use pacing to enjoy the holidays and other special events.

Dr. Dane B. Cook, assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Kinesiology, discussed the research on acute exercise in CFS from an exercise physiology perspective and from a patient perspective. He reviewed the research on physiological responses during exercise followed by physiological and symptom responses post-exercise (i.e., post-exertional malaise). Dr. Cook also outlined the differences between acute and chronic exercise responses in the studies that have examined exercise training in CFS.
