What should I do if I think I might have ME/CFS?
If you suspect you have this disease, you need to discuss it with your doctor to rule out other illnesses that have a similar presentation such as fibromyalgia, hypothyroidism, cardiac dysfunctions, an infection, or depression.
It is possible that one of these other conditions can comorbid with ME/CFS
Women ages 35-50 are at a higher risk of contracting this disease. The second most common group to develop it includes boys and girls in their adolescence (ages 11-23). However, it can strike anyone, including men and young children. The illness doesn't discriminate between race, age, sex or socio economic class.
