Does anyone have any information on where I could find studies indicating that people with CFIDS, or any chronic illness, should try to be as active as their illness allows them for therapeutic reasons.  It’s common knowledge, and any doctor will tell you, that being stagnant can degrade ones condition, but I’d like to find some actual studies or a cite source.

Robert, I'm sorry that I'm not going to be of a lot of help - I don't know any specific studies. The only thing I can tell you is that what I have read about cfs and activity is that if you push yourself to exercise when you are not up to it, your cfs symptoms will get worse. I wish I had some specific sources for you.
