Action For MEStudent hub for people with ME

Published on Monday 30 January 2012 17:19

At this time of year, many young people will be considering university options and many parents and guardians will be worrying about them leaving home for the first time.

Leaving home to go to university can be an exciting and challenging time – and, if the truth be told, a little bit scary, especially if you have a serious medical condition. Action for ME, the leading UK charity for people with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) and their carers, has now set up a Student Hub section on its website www.actionforme.org.uk.

It is packed with useful facts to help young people manage their condition and links to an interactive forum for peer support during their time at university or college.

ME is a fluctuating chronic illness affecting 250,000 people in the UK. Many first became ill at school, college or university.

It may be diagnosed as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) or Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome (PVFS). Symptoms include persistent exhaustion, muscle and/or joint pain, sleep disturbance, feeling ’flu-like and having problems with memory and concentration.
