Psychosocial factors & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

This study investigated the number and severity of life events, Type

A behaviour, coping strategies and social support differences

between chronic fatigue and irritable bowel syndrome patients

prior to illness and between these groups and healthy

controls. Although few differences were found between the

groups for life events, a number of interesting results

emerged with regard to different aspects of Type A behaviour,

various coping strategies and social support. These findings

are discussed with respect to existing research in the field.
