Flomax (Tamsulosin)

Because the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome are similar to some of the early symptoms of so many other conditions—everything from kidney disease and anemia to AIDS and leukemia—the first step for anyone who thinks he may have it is to rule out those other possibilities. That means getting an evaluation by a doctor who is familiar with the CFS guidelines set out by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
And if you are one of the men diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome, here are some steps you can take to make your battle with it as short and as easy as possible.
Slow down. Stress is one of the common denominators for guys with chronic fatigue syndrome—so many overextended young professionals came down with CFS in the go-go 1980s that it became known as the yuppie flu. Thus, the universally recommended treatment for CFS is simple: Get plenty of rest, eat a balanced diet and exercise moderately.
“Look at your lifestyle,” says Peter Manu, M.D., director of medical services at Hillside Hospital in New Hyde Park, New York. “Rearrange your priorities, cut down on the pressure. You have to start drawing the line somewhere.”
Stay active. Becoming sedentary or being groggy from too much sleep are both common side effects of CFS. “We find most CFS patients sleep too much,” says Dr. Manu.
With CFS you won’t feel like working out, and vigorous exercise only makes the fatigue worse. Nevertheless, do try to get aerobic exercise, even if that means no more than getting up and walking around the house—even minor activity will be better for your body in the long run. “If you don’t have muscle fatigue already, you’re going to get it by spending three months in bed,” warns Dr. Manu.
