Summary The current study explored the relationships between physical and emotional stress and the symptomatology of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). Fifty-four CFS patients were studied using a longitudinal design. A self-report format was used to collect daily measures of major physical (sleep disturbance and physical activity) and emotional (subjective emotional stress level) stressors, as well as measures of levels of fatigue and secondary symptoms. The variables accounted for a moderate variance at the individual and occasion levels. Sleep disturbance and emotional stress were found to be positively associated with levels of fatigue and symptomatology, whereas physical activity was found to have a negative relationship with fatigue only. The severity of fatigue and symptoms were found to fluctuate daily in relation with the variables, indicating the complex nature of the associations.
