In brief: Some yes, some no

This is a tough question to answer with confidence because the medical community still doesn't fully understand this syndrome.
It can have many different causes, some of which are curable and others, not. Depending on the cause, if diagnosed, one can recover from cfs. Regardless, it is a long, slow process that can be measured in months if not years- akin to a marathon, not a a 100 yard sprint.
