M.E. Awareness Week 2019

M.E. Awareness Week 2019

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).

You can find out more and get involved with the campaign online here.
