fadedribbon

Action for M.E. is the leading UK charity for people with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) and their carers.

M.E. is a chronic, fluctuating illness affecting 250,000 people in the UK. It may be diagnosed as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) or Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome (PVFS). M.E. symptoms may include persistent exhaustion, muscle and/or joint pain, sleep disturbance, feeling ’flu-like and having problems with memory and concentration.

Action for M.E. will provide information and support, while campaigning for better services, more effective treatments and greater investment in research – until our vision is achieved and M.E. is overcome.

Forums are online places where you can discuss things or get peer support from people in a similar situation.

One such forum for people suffering from ME is at Action for M.E. where everybody’s welcome but to take part you just have to register first.
There are a number of different forums available from –

About us
Feedback about the Online M.E. Centre

Another website M.E. Support is one of the leading Websites on Myalgic Encephalomyelitis providing information, advice and support. M.E. is little-known and often misunderstood but it is an extensive and debilitating neurological disease. It is also referred as Myalgic Encephalopathy, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Chronic Fatigue and Immune Dysfunction Syndrome (CFIDS) or Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome (PVFS).

  1. Thanks gilly, there is a local Fibromyalgia support group who are trying to raise awareness about it with their own annual event so I am going to try and help them do this, hopefully with the support of people reading my blog. 🙂
