    I have been looking at oxygen Therapy for ME.

    I would be interested to see if anyone has tried it.

    It is offered in the MS Action centres but says that anyone with a neurological illness can access the therapies.

    I think this would be good for stimulating the brain and the memory. I havent tried it yet.

    My memory was awful when it use to be pretty good. I started using Solitaire and Suduko on my Ipad to start retraining my brain to remember and think.

    Solitaire was good because the game was short and required concentration for only a small amount of time. Then I moved onto Suduko. I am now using some other brain training software and it seems to be helping.

      That is hopeful, wknight!  I used to be a Sudoku freak, let it go several years ago.  I am harmed by psych drugs rather than CFS, but there's overlap so I was attracted to this thread.  Memory and concentration are still difficult for me.  

      I took up online Sudoku and it is horrifying how poorly I am performing, the mistakes I am making repeating numbers...the site I am using allows you to compare your results to others, and mostly I fall in the category of 97% of people do better than me!  Ugh!
