OBJECTIVE: To observe the therapeutic effects of electrical acupuncture and auricular-plaster therapy for chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). METHOD: 64 CFS patients were randomly divided into two groups. 32 cases in the treatment group were treated by the electrical acupuncture and auricular-plaster therapy, and 32 cases in the control group with oral hydrocortisone. RESULTS: The total effective rates were respectively 93.75% in the treatment group and 75.00% in the control group, with a statistically significant difference between the two groups (P < 0.05). CONCLUSION: Electrical acupuncture and auricular-plaster therapy may show a better anti-fatigue effect than that of routine Western drugs.
