Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome affects nearly 1.5 million people nationwide and over 28,000 Massachusetts residents, but few people have heard of the condition. Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrom can have severe neurological effects, in addition to zapping a person’s energy to the point where simple tasks leave them bed ridden.  

Lisa Hall, a Registered Nurse at Northampton Integrative Medicine, and chronic fatigue syndrome patient Rivka Solomon join Carrie Saldo to shed light on the symptoms of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, its treatment, and what it’s like living with the condition.
