What Is M E

Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) is an illness with many names. Within the NHS it is commonly called Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS or CFS/M.E.). Sometimes it is known as Myalgic Encephalopathy or diagnosed as Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome (PVFS).

M.E. is a long-term (chronic) fluctuating illness that causes symptoms affecting many body systems, more commonly the nervous and immune systems.

Many people with M.E. experience persistent fatigue or pain. However, M.E. is characterised by a range of additional symptoms.

Symptoms may include persistent exhaustion (‘fatigue’), muscle and/or joint pain, sleep disturbance, ’flu-like symptoms such as headache, sore throat, painful lymph nodes, dizziness and/or nausea and problems with memory and concentration.

M.E. affects people in different ways and to differing degrees. It’s a very variable
illness and your symptoms can change over time.

While it’s important to find out more about the range of symptoms experienced by different people with M.E. – it is also important to know that you may only experience a few of them.
