What are ME/CFS & Long Covid?

Myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), formerly known as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), is a chronic, complex, neuroimmune disease that profoundly limits the health and productivity of patients and is often triggered by an infection. Long Covid describes a collection of lingering symptoms following a COVID-19 infection.

The most prevalent symptoms of both ME/CFS and Long Covid are crippling fatigue, post-exertional malaise and cognitive dysfunction. There is no cure for either, nor are there any FDA-approved drugs or treatments.
