  • The Waterloo Wellington Myalgic Encephalomyelitis Association (WWMEA) is a registered charitable organization (not-for-profit) that provides support group meetings and information for those affected by M.E. (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis). M.E. is a painful, chronic, debilitating illness that affects many bodily systems. The WWMEA operates in Southwestern Ontario within Wellington County and the Region of Waterloo serving cities such as Cambridge, Guelph, Kitchener and Waterloo (KW).¬  This area is also referred to as the Golden Triangle of Ontario as well as Canada's Technology Triangle. The WWMEA relies on membership fees and donations to cover operating expenses.¬  Charitable Tax Receipts will be issued for donations from within Canada.¬  Funds are also raised through the Zehrs Save-A-Tape Program of Zehrs Supermarkets. M.E. is comprised of numerous symptoms such as impairment in short-term memory, impairment in concentration, sore throat, tender lymph nodes, exhaustion, muscle pain, multijoint pain, headaches (of a new type, pattern, or severity), unrefreshing sleep and post-exertional malaise lasting more than 24 hours.

  • M.E. can be described as an INVISIBLE CHRONIC ILLNESS

There are no visible symptoms to see such as a rash or a cut. Most M.E. sufferers are so ill or in so much pain that they are house-bound.¬  Thus, they are out-of-sight. M.E. is a chronic, debilitating multi-system disorder comprised of numerous symptoms which include extreme malaise, pain, cognitive dysfunction, and overwhelming fatigue.¬  At this time there is no cure for this illness.¬  M.E. has similar symptoms to many disorders, but should not be confused with them. The links at left will guide you through information regarding M.E. The information presented here is not intended to be comprehensive, but rather, to be a starting point for readers to find relevant information about M.E. The links to external web sites are not intended to be a complete listing of all M.E. sites on the internet.¬  However, you will discover that most of the links that are provided, have many more links to peruse.

MYALGIC ENCEPHALOMYELITIS Updated: Tuesday, October 5, 1999

Introduction

Recent discussions at the Brussels conference and elsewhere have helped to clarify that myalgic encephalomyelitis (M.E.) and CFS are not the same entity. There has been confusion about this, even in Britain where M.E. was first defined and studied under that name. What exactly is M.E.? According to M.E. experts the key difference between M.E. and chronic fatigue syndrome is that M.E. requires the criterion of easy fatiguability following minimal exertion and a delay in recovery of muscle strength.

Definitions

M.E. has been described several times in medical literature. It was first defined in an editorial published in the Lancet in 1956 which discussed several epidemic outbreaks of prior years. This first description was rather loose and was not very specific. In later years Ramsay, EG Dowsett and others refined the definition of M.E. in various published papers. After Ramsay died in 1990, Dowsett et al. wrote the latest version of the M.E. definition now known as the "London criteria". These have been used in recent papers by Costa (Brainstem perfusion is impaired in patients with CFS, QJM 1995; 88:767-773) and Scholey (A comparison of the cognitive deficits seen in M.E. to Alzheimer's Disease, Proceedings of the British Psychological Society, 1999, January, 12).

M.E. Stands for Myalgic Encephalo myelitis Myalgic - means muscle - indicating the pain involved in the muscles. Encephalo means brain - indicating that the brain functioning is involved. myelitis means inflammation of the spinal cord and does not occur in M.E. so 'pathy' Myalgic Encephalopathy is now being used instead which means 'sickness' or 'illness'. Myalgic Encephalopathy (My-al-jik En-kefalo-pathy) or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is an illness characterised by prolonged, debilitating fatigue and multiple symptoms including headaches, recurrent sore throats, muscle and joint pains, stomach pains, loss of appetite, and cognitive complaints such as difficulty in understanding, concentrating and finding thecorrect word when speaking. In very severe cases, the brain symptoms become severe: vertigo is common, swallowing becomes difficult, shaking fits can occur, and contracture of the limbs and tingling, numbness or even paralysis is not unheard of often down one side of the body The profound fatigue which marks the disorder can come on gradually or suddenly, often after a viral illness. Unlike the short-term disability of an acute infection, M.E or CFS symptoms (by definition - Chronic meaning long-term) persists for at least 3 months in children.

ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was to replicate earlier research by McEvedy and Beard, using a group of people with a clear diagnosis of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.). Their scores on the EPI were compared to those recorded by a non-symptomatic control group as well as a group of patients suffering from another chronic illness (M.S. group). The results suggest that the slightly raised Neuroticism scores of people with M.S. do not necessarily indicate a hysterical personality or neuroticism. Both the limitations of the EPI as a measure of Neuroticism and Extraversion in people with physical illnesses and the psycho-social sequelae of conditions such as M.E. may have affected the responses on the inventory. These factors should also be considered when interpreting the data obtained by McEvedy and Beard. Consequently, it was impossible to draw any firm conclusions about the role of personality in the aetiology of M.E.
