What is ME/CFS?Section titled What%20is%20ME/CFS%3F

Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), commonly referred to as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), is a long-term and complex condition characterised by profound fatigue that isn't alleviated by rest. This ailment's precise causes remain elusive, though it's believed to be triggered by a combination of factors, including viral infections, immune system issues, and hormonal imbalances. Recognising and diagnosing ME/CFS can be challenging as symptoms often mirror other illnesses.

Symptoms and Challenges of ME/CFSSection titled Symptoms%20and%20Challenges%20of%20ME/CFS

The symptoms of ME/CFS extend beyond chronic fatigue. Individuals may experience pain, brain fog, sleep disturbances, and a range of other debilitating effects. Fluctuating symptoms also mean that care needs can vary day-to-day, presenting unique challenges for those managing the condition. Sufferers often face obstacles in their personal and social lives and may struggle with activities that were previously simple, hence the importance of a support system that understands these intricacies.
