Health App for Chronic Fatigue

Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is one of several terms used to described a long-term disease that causes persistent physical and mental exhaustion. This condition is also referred to as systemic exertion intolerance disease (SEID) or myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME). CFS it is a complicated disorder characterized by extreme fatigue that can’t be explained by another underlying medical condition. The symptoms differ between people and range from mild to severe. The fatigue may worsen with physical or mental activity and it doesn’t improve with rest. In many cases, the chronic exhaustion can lead to depression, social isolation, lifestyle restrictions, and increased work absences. 

There is currently no cure for CFS, but the symptoms and complications associated with it can be effectively managed by a personalized treatment plan that combines medication, graded exercise programs, and psychological counselling. However, adhering to these treatment plans and therapy isn’t easy - especially if you are feeling constantly exhausted and drained. It is therefore important that you have a system in place that will help you remember to take your medication and attend appointments. Smartphone health apps, like MyTherapy, can help you with this.

MyTherapy is an innovative and practical medication reminder and health tracker app that is designed to help people living with chronic conditions, such as chronic fatigue syndrome. Seeing as treatment for CFS includes medication intake, therapy, exercise, and visiting doctors regularly; staying on top of everything may seem like an overwhelming process. So if you have CFS, then you should consider using MyTherapy to help you simplify the tasks of your treatment plan into an everyday to-do list. 

The app can be specifically adapted to meet your needs and you can use it to remind you of any health-related task. MyTherapy generates reliable reminders for your medication intake, exercises, and appointments, thereby ensuring that you consistently stay on top of your treatment plan and improve your quality of life. All you are required to do is upload your medication as per inscribed instructions and other relevant data and the app will take care of the rest. You will be reminded of your tasks via an alarm (which can also be set to vibrate or silent) and pop-up notifications and the app will keep reminding you of your task until you click the confirm button. To upload your medication, you can either use the app’s built-in barcode scanner to scan your medication package or the app’s comprehensive country-by-country database.
