York ME Community

Background

ME stands for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and was recognised as a Neurological Disorder by the World Health Organisation 1969. Estimates are that 250,000 people in the UK have ME, of which around 800 are in the York area.

ME can affect the cognitive function, mobility, speech, concentration, and things such as light and sound can be extremely debilitating. It causes a broken energy production system and has a huge effect on the immune system.

The nature of the illness’s symptoms makes ME difficult to diagnose.
The York ME Community is a Support and Awareness Group reaching out for those with ME, their friends, family or just for those who wish to learn more.

There is a website at www.York-MECommunity.org which gives lots of information on ME as well as a great mix of local and general stories of interest, and a Facebook Group for local people looking for support.
