Making Breakthroughs Possible
The most prevalent diseases you’ve never heard of
What is ME/CFS?
Myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) is a chronic, complex, neuroimmune disease that profoundly limits the health and productivity of patients and, like Long Covid, is often triggered by an infection. Because it is not yet fully understood, there is no cure for ME/CFS, nor are there any FDA-approved drugs or treatments. The main symptoms are extreme exhaustion (exacerbated by activity), cognitive dysfunction and unrefreshing sleep. Other symptoms may vary.
Solve M.E. takes a holistic approach to research and advocacy, catalyzing efforts through our various programs to make ME/CFS, Long Covid, and other “long haul” diseases better understood, diagnosable, and treatable. We are the largest U.S. peer-reviewed provider of private competitive research funding exclusively for ME/CFS, and the partner of choice for strategic, collaborative relationships with patients, researchers, government officials, and other disease organizations across the globe.

Dr. Anthony Fauci on ME/CFS & Long Covid
“It’s extraordinary how many people have a post viral syndrome that’s very strikingly similar to myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome. They just don’t get back to normal energy or normal feeling of good health.”LEARN MORE
