M.E. - Myalgic Encephalomyeliti - affects an estimated 250,000 men, women and children in the UK. Symptoms can include post-exertional malaise a period of intense exhaustion that lasts for more than 24 hours following exertion and chronic pain. M.E. affects different people in different ways and symptoms can fluctuate and change over time.
M.E. is defined by the World Health Organisation as a neurological condition. It may be diagnosed as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome CFS or Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome PVFS.This should not be confused with chronic fatigue, which is a different illness.
