Understand ME/CFS

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) is a disease that has been existing for very long time (I don't know how long) but just during recent couple of decades been recognized by some medical experts as a "real" disease.
You may think you never met any CFS sufferers, but you might know someone who always claim "tired" or "no energy". And very often many patients come to doctors with all different kind of symptoms but doctors could not diagnose them. These people, are usually ignored by their friends or families, and mistakenly diagnosed by doctors as "hypochondria", or "mental stress". However, more and more, they are recognised as CFS sufferers.
