Living with ME and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
ME/CFS affects an estimated 250,000 people in the UK, roughly 3 in every 1,000 people. Chronic Fatigue conditions are some of the most frustrating and life-altering conditions to suffer from, so why are they still so poorly understood?
As of 2020, medical science still cannot explain why some people get chronic fatigue syndromes and there is very little effective treatment.
This will be the much-needed, go-to, evidence-based guide for people struggling with ME/CFS, or their friends and family, providing information and advice about the nature of the condition, how it progresses, and what they can do to improve their health. Many treatments are therapeutic, so Living with ME and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome will be written by two leading experts - consultant rheumatologist, Dr Gerald Coakley, and occupational therapist, Beverly Knops.
