National ME/FM Action Network of Canada's First Annual Symposium

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is not about being tired all the time !
Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and Fibromyalgia (FM)are Neurological Disorders involving the immune system, the neuroendocrine system, the muscles and the brain.
How can so many systems of the body be involved?
Decades of research linking polio and ME/CFS and new research comparing the late effects of polio with ME/CFS and FM provide the answer to this question. Learn what was discovered in the 2001 International PPS/ME/CFS/FM Survey conducted on Canadians, Americans and Britons.
