Almost everyone experiences fatigue from time to time, but for at least one million U.S. adults, teens and children, the fatigue is crushing, unrelieved by rest and accompanied by a constellation of other punishing symptoms. They suffer from Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) also called Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). ME/CFS is a debilitating and real medical condition that has a serious impact on a person’s quality of life. Early diagnosis of ME/CFS is important.
If this sounds like you and you’ve been searching for answers, this “Do I Have ME/CFS“ quiz can help you determine if you have symptoms characteristic of ME/CFS. It’s important to remember that this is just a screening quiz and does not substitute for a clinical examination by a health care provider. The only way ME/CFS can be diagnosed is with an extensive health history, a thorough physical examination, exclusion of other possible sources of symptoms and consideration of all the symptoms you are experiencing.
