M.E. Awareness Week began on Monday this week and will run until the International Awareness Day for M.E. on Sunday 12th May.
Andrew says, "The week-long campaign aims to encourage awareness and understanding of M.E (myalgic encephalomyelitis), with this year’s campaign focusing on the “Real M.E”: the experience of people who suffer from the disease."
The NHS website outlines the symptoms of M.E. as including: sleep problems, such as insomnia, muscle or joint pain; headaches; a sore throat or sore glands that aren't swollen; problems thinking, remembering or concentrating; flu-like symptoms; feeling dizzy or sick; and fast or irregular heartbeats (heart palpitations).
