About M.E., Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome

ME/CFS is a very serious illness that has a vast array of symptoms.

The term 'ME/CFS' has become known as the 'umbrella term' to describe what is now believed to be sub-groups of illnesses. These include:

  • Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.)
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)
  • Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome (PVFS)

All of these fall under the label 'ME/CFS'.

In fact, there are plenty more names and descriptions, that have been created over the years - all trying to pinpoint what this illness (or rather, what this group of illnesses), actually is. People are still disagreeing even now. Other names include:

  • Myalgic Encephalopathy (M.E.) and
  • Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome (CFIDS).

To make it easier for you to read through this section, we will refer to these labels and/or sub-groups of illnesses, collectively as 'ME/CFS'...
