Chronic fatigue syndrome has unknown causes and has no cure but cognitive behavioral therapy may help sufferers. Symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome include muscle pain, nonrestorative sleep and exhaustion - all of which last for at least 6 months. Other helpful therapies include exercise, massage, acupuncture and special diets. Study results showed that 5 months of cognitive therapy resulted in less fatigue and improved physical functioning. About 60% of the study group teens returned to full-time school compared to about 30% of the group that had no cognitive therapy.
