Please check our Links section which has details of nearby groups, so you can choose which is the most convenient group for you to get to.
We are an independent meet-up group for people who have M.E. and live in and around Cambridgeshire. Accompanying friends and relatives of people with M.E. are also very welcome to come.
The primary aim of this group is to offer an opportunity for local people who have M.E. to meet together in a relaxed, friendly and supportive atmosphere.
Everyone in our group is in the same ‘M.E. boat’ as you, so we hope you feel confident to come along!
The organisers recognise M.E. as a physical illness. I’m sure you have your own opinions – come along and share them!
You may have had a diagnosis which is named as one of the illnesses listed below.
M.E. – Myalgic Encephalomyelitis
There is no universally accepted diagnosis yet, or even full agreement about the name of our illness. We hope this will change soon.
What we do know is that ME is a multi-system physical illness with a variety of symptoms.
Detailed information about symptoms, and other advice, can be found on the website of the ME charity:
The ME Association (www.meassociation.org.uk).
In line with the latest scientific evidence we consider PEM (Post Exertional Malaise) to be a distinctive and cardinal symptom of ME.
If you see any inaccuracies in the information on our website, or you think it needs updating in any way, please don’t hesitate to let us know. Thank you.
