The petitioner refers to her poor health conditions, as she suffers from Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME). Such disease, sometimes called Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, is a devastating chronic disease that causes dysfunction of the neurological, immune, endocrine and metabolism systems. The petitioner states that ME affects approximately two million EU citizens, with huge economic and societal costs, thus representing a hidden public health crisis. The petitioner calls on the European institutions to make sufficient funds available for biomedical research into ME, in order to deliver a diagnostic test, clinical trials and effective treatments for this disabling disease.
