Living With ME: The chronic/post-viral fatigue syndrome is a book by British doctor and patient Charles Shepherd.

Synopsis[edit]

Although not a new disease, M.E. (also known as 'yuppie flu') is at last being recognised and taken seriously. M.E. is short for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, a term which relates to the parts of the body affected: Myalgic, the muscles; Encephalo, the brain; and Myelitis, the nerves. Until recently, many people suffering from M.E. had great difficulty in finding a diagnosis and a way of dealing effectively with the disease. Now fully updated, this comprehensive guide provides much-needed information about M.E. It describes the symptoms, what triggers it and who can get it and also discusses additional problems such as disordered sleep, depression, pain in the joints and difficulties with the eyes, ears and balance.
