ME (Myalgic Encephalopathy)

A condition resulting in massive, debilitating fatigue accompanied by diverse symptoms including memory loss, diminished powers of concentration, sleep disorder, headaches, low-grade fever, muscle and joint pains and intolerance to change of temperature. This condition is also known as post-viral fatigue, chronic fatigue syndrome and myalgic encephalomyelitis. It is often associated with stress.

The severity of the disease varies considerably: Some patients are bedridden while others suffer only mildly debilitating symptoms. The cause of the disease is unknown, although there are hypotheses relating it to an abnormal immune response due to concurrent stress and a previous infection, perhaps viral. The Epstein-Barr virus, Human Herpes virus 6, Cytomegaloinclusion virus, Coxsackie virus, various stealth viruses and a retrovirus have been implicated. All of these viruses are common, and the general population is frequently exposed to them. The disease is not life-threatening and is not considered infectious. However, if a viral cause is proven, there would be an infective phase during or immediately after the initial incubation of the virus. There is no definitive diagnostic test for chronic fatigue immune dysfunction syndrome (CFIDS); thus it is necessary to rule out the possibility of another disease that produces fatigue. While the majority of individuals with confirmed CFIDS have a positive antibody to one or more of the implicated viruses, the viruses are so common that antibody levels found in the body may be suggestive but are not diagnostic.

There is no standard method of treatment. However, some believe that treatment based on reversal of the abnormal immune response is helpful. Some individuals affected by CFIDS improve with time; most who are not treated remain functionally impaired for several years.

All types of people at all ages can be affected by ME.
