Primary Fatigue Service

It is important that if you have concerns about your symptoms, and think you might have ME/CFS, Long COVID or Post Viral Fatigue you speak to your GP, Consultant or Allied Health Professional (e.g. nurse, nurse practitioner, therapist) about your concerns. They will want to rule out other treatable causes for your symptoms before referring you to the Primary Fatigue Service. They will need to check blood tests and may also want to do other simple tests, depending on your symptoms. There is no test to diagnose ME/CFS, Long COVID or Post Viral Fatigue, these tests are to make sure your symptoms are not caused by something else that can be treated, but in a different way.

Welcome to the Primary Fatigue Service. This service provides help and support for people living with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Long COVID, and Post Viral Fatigue, where other medical causes have been ruled out. Everyone’s experience of living with these conditions is different. Some people will experience one or two symptoms, and others might have many. The impact on daily life and well-being can range from very mild, to very severe. This website provides general information about these conditions and symptom management, and offers more information about the service, where support is more personalised. You can find more information about the service and some of the more common symptoms and their management in the sections below.

Any advice in these pages is general across the conditions we help with and is not intended to substitute professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.
