Alex Howard was a normal, happy teenager until just before his 16th birthday, when he began to experience strange, unexplained physical symptoms. In time he was diagnosed with ME, or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, a severe illness that the medical profession has yet to offer an explanation or cure for. After spending two years bed-bound and developing clinical depression, Alex committed himself to finding a cure and returning himself to health and happiness. A chronicle of Alex Howard's seven-year journey with M.E.
The updated second edition includes Alex's experiences since the first edition of Why M.E.? was published, most crucially his adventure setting up the Optimum Health Clinic, an award-winning clinic specialising in M.E., which has since treated over 5,000 patients.
