Exertion-induced muscle fatigue is a key symptom of ME/CFS. It is often accompanied by weakness, pain, aches, and twitching (fasciculations) in the muscle. So it’s not surprising that people believe there is a major problem in the way that their muscles are producing energy during activity.
Muscle-energy supplements are naturally-occurring substances that assist in the production of energy at a cellular level, especially in muscle. Those considered in this leaflet are available as commercial products. They are normally classified as supplements rather than medicines because there is very limited evidence for making medical claims about their effectiveness in ME/CFS.
The ME Association telephone helpline – ME Connect – is available every day of the year, during the hours of 10am-12noon, 2pm-4pm and 7pm-9pm. Please phone: 0344 576 5326 if you have any questions or would simply like to talk to someone who is there to listen.
