ME & Coronavirus / Covid-19
People with neurological conditions are considered to be at higher risk from catching Covid-19, although it is uncertain exactly how the virus might affect people with ME.
ME specialists find that:
- it is likely to cause a relapse, or significant exacerbation of symptoms
- the cells protecting you against viruses are less functional because they are overworked
- there are other possible reasons
- Metabolic dysfunction in ME/CFS not due to anti-mitochondrial antibodies
- Modeling disability: softly making the invisible visible
- Sleep problems in adolescents with CFS: a case-control study nested within a prospective clinical cohort
- Review of the quality control checks performed by current genome-wide & targeted-genome association studies on ME/CFS
- Systematic review of the epidemiological burden of ME/CFS across Europe: current evidence & EUROMENE research recommendations for epidemiology
