Our September website ‘Quick Survey’ on uninterrupted sleep | an explanation

This month’s MEA website poll is assessing how many hours of solid uninterrupted sleep people with ME/CFS have each night.

It is generally agreed that the human body needs at least 4 to 5 hours of solid uninterrupted sleep each night in order to function mentally and physically the next day.

Sleep disturbance is very common in ME/CFS and poor quality sleep contributes to the characteristic complaint of ‘unrefreshing sleep’.

You can place your vote by using the ‘Quick Survey’ at the bottom right of this page.

Overseas votes are welcome in this poll.
