Associated Conditions

In addition to ME/CFS, it is common for people living with ME/CFS to have other conditions, including:

  • fibromyalgia
  • orthostatic intolerance (OI)
  • mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS)
  • Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS)

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a condition that causes widespread pain and muscle stiffness throughout the body.

Orthostatic Intolerance

Orthostatic intolerance (OI) is an “umbrella term” for a number of conditions where symptoms are made worse by sitting or standing.

Mast Cell Activation Syndrome

Mast cell activation syndrome (MCAS) is a condition where the mast cells in your body, which are part of your immune system, react to triggers that normally wouldn’t cause a problem, producing symptoms of an allergic reaction.

Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) refers to a group of genetic disorders that involve connective tissue. It is inherited and can affect any part of the body.

If you are experiencing fatigue or symptoms that you feel may be post-exertional malaise (PEM) connected to ME/CFS, please review our information on stop rest pace and talk to your doctor about your concerns.
