    ME can start suddenly and it can happen to anyone and is often defined as a severe fatigue for six consecutive months or longer durations. The fatigue causes a significant reduction of activity levels and patients experience symptoms including impaired memory, extreme exhaustion, nausea, muscle pain and severe headaches amongst an extensive list of ailments.

Help us get ME/CFS recognised!

  • Quality & Commitment

    It is more common than you think!.

    • Some estimates suggest that ME/CFS may affect 3,000 in every 100,000 adults
    • Heath organisations have suggested that more than 1 million Americans have ME/CFS
    • According to the National Health Service, approximately a quarter of a million people in the UK have ME/CFS

    Thorough Documentation

    Did you know.

    • There are no widely, standarised and recognised laboratory tests to diagnose ME/CFS
    • ME/CFS starts suddenly with an infection (Borellia, Bartonella..) and is usually accompanied by a "flu-like” illness
    • The period between the start of the disease and receiving proper treatment can sometimes take years
    • Many sufferers do not have the financial means to pay for treatments
    • Without the correct diagnosis and treatment, ME/CFS can lead to death

    Evolving theme

    ME/CFS causes financial disaster.

    • Social security schemes may not consider sufferers as sick and stop benefits

    • Recovery can be a very long process often measured in years
    • “Biological level” treatments are generally not funded by government healthcare programs
