More than 90% of people who suffer from a systemic neuro-immune condition known as ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) or the Chronic FatigueSyndrome (CFS) have not been diagnosed with the condition yet.

New research on ME/CFS provides hope. OFM News’ Christal-Lize Muller spoke to an expert and someone who suffers from the disease.
