In the United Kingdom Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) often goes by another name; Myalgic Encephalopathy (ME).

There are an estimated 250,000 people in the United Kingdom suffering from from Myalgic Encephalopathy.  Out of these that suffer, about 65% of them are female and most are between the ages of 20 to 40.

Those that suffer from Myalgic Encephalopathy also have many of the symptoms as those suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

The primary Myalgic Encephalopathy Symptoms are physical exhaustion, mental exhaustion, challenges completing simple tasks that otherwise would be simple.  Muscle pain, twitching, problems with exercising, cognitive disfunctions often leading to clumsiness, sensitivity to light and many more.

Like those with Chronic Fatigue, people with Myalgic Encephalopathy often have a hard time falling asleep at night, even though their bodies are exhausted and need the sleep.  Many times the sleep they do get is not refreshing, and waking up exhausted is quite possible.

Many people with Myalgic Encephalopathy and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome have given up social activities as they don’t have the energy to actually do them any more.  Deadlines at work can be challenging if they are too tired to get them done.

Some of the reasons that people could be suffering from Myalgic Encephalopathy are a poor diet reliant on processed foods, stress, overuse of antibiotics, sensitivity to vaccinations, smoking, alcohol, food additive sensitivities and viral infections.

Treatment for Myalgic Encephalopathy is hard, since there is no real single cause.  Often the symptoms are treated to help the cause behind it.  A better diet with nutrient rich foods is a great place to start, as is getting enough sleep, trying to limit stress in your life.  As are other many Chronic Fatigue Treatments.
