Introduction

Introduction

Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) is a long-term (chronic), fluctuating, neurological condition that affects an estimated 250,000 people in the UK, including around 21,000 children and young people.

If you are one of them, this section of the website is just for you and your family. We want to make sure you have the information you need about M.E. so that you can make decisions about living with M.E. in the way that works best for you.

If you have a question about symptoms, seeing a doctor, going to school, or any other aspect of living with M.E. that isn't answered on these pages, you can ask one of our Information and Support Officers.

If you would like to meet other children and young young people with M.E., you can register to join our forum. Please note this is for Action for M.E.'s under 18 members only - and you can join for free today.
