Paralysis is a terrifying symptom that has often been reported in feedback from people with Severe Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) yet it is rarely referred to and has not been researched.
Paralysis in ME means the patient cannot feel and cannot move and has no choice.
Paralysis in ME can take over part of the body or the whole body, i.e., partial, or full body paralysis.
Paralysis is not treated as if it is part of ME, especially in Severe/Very Severe ME.
Paralysis, a recognised part of ME, is generally ignored, downplayed, or treated as not real.
