Be strong . Be courageous . Be hopeful.
We are a 501(c)(3) free clinic dedicated to improve healthcare equality to Minnesotans with ME/CFS caused by long-haul COVID, post-viral syndrome, or other physical/mental triggers.
We hope to advance the cause of ME/CFS, so more medical providers, families, and neighbors can understand this disease and their loved ones who are suffering from it.
According to the data published by the CDC in 2015*,
About 836,000 to 2.5 millions of people suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome in the United States.
Less than 20% have received the correct diagnosis from their clinicians.
Women are four time more likely than men to suffer from ME/CFS.
Suffers are mostly likely to be ages 40 to 60.
People with ME/CFS are often bedbound. They can only take one shower per week or even month due to exhaustion. They may not be able to cook a meal or put dishes in the dishwasher because of dizziness, a racing heart or muscle aches. They long to gather with their families without having to leave the event early. They hope to watch a movie with their children without constantly replaying the same scenes because they cannot comprehending the conversations.
At MECFS Clinic MN, we carefully listen to the words of every person with ME/CFS. We respect their feelings. We aspire to improve their quality of lives.
