ME/CFS is characterized by a range of symptoms, intense physical and/or mental relapses with muscle pain, and specific cognitive disabilities.
ME/CFS can be as disabling as multiple sclerosis, heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or end-stage (terminal renal failure).
ME/CFS dramatically changes lives. Education can be severely disrupted, employment can be impossible. Social and family life become restricted or non-existent.
People with ME/CFS may be unable to get out of bed or leave their home for months or years.
