Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) or myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) is a medical condition of unknown origin that effects about a ¼ of a million people in the UK. People suffering from chronic fatigue report mental and physical tiredness as well as flu like symptoms. About ¾ of suffers are unable to work, many finding themselves bedridden.

There is no known medical cure for chronic fatigue or even the knowledge why the condition comes about. There are indicators that it could be a psychosocial condition but unfortunately most of the research money is aimed towards studying physiology.
