About ME/CFS

Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) is a long-lasting disease that affects the body's immune, neurological, and physical systems, causing a range of symptoms. The illness is usually triggered by a viral or flu-like infection. ME affects many different systems in the body, including the central nervous system, immune system, digestive system, and cardiovascular system.
