ME Awareness Week takes place from 6-12 May 2013. The week aims to improve awareness of ME and raise funds for research into this painful condition. 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 and more effective treatments and driving and investing in research until our vision is achieved and M.E. is overcome.
Find out more about us and what we believe about M.E.
Apart from a small grant in Scotland, we receive no government funding and are dependent on charitable donations for all of our work. Please help us to do more. Find out about ways you can help.
