Causes & Treatment

The exact causes are not known, often M.E/CFS will start after an ordinary viral infection - flu, glandular fever or even a cold.

However, in some cases there may be no obvious viral "trigger" at all and the person may "slide" into the illness over a period of months or even years and often  experience a combination of factors including illness, stress and bereavement.
