Just wanted to ask if anyone had any ideas of what could be wrong with me, i was told I had M.E but i'm worried its something else. I've had increased problems with walking, it started with my toes, i became unable to bend them, when i was 14 and hadn't injured them, now i'm 16 and cannot walk at all unaided i use crutches or a wheelchair, my calf muscles are really weak, when i stand my back curves in, i can't lift my feet to go upstairs, i can't stand on one leg, tiptoe, jump, get up from sitting without using my hands, climb stairs, and to stand i have to turn my legs in at the hips

my family keep saying i need to try and start to walk properly, and i keep telling them this is me trying my very best. They think due to the "M.E" I've been tired nd haven't used my legs so they need strengthening. But i'm worried its something progressive, because i tried to walk normally as long as i could, and it slowly just getting worse, please help,
thank you

  • In our country, ME is considered similar/same as CFSprogressive muscle weakness is happening to people with CFSFind a local doctor who does Bioset therapyIt is non-invasive and it worksI have had 2 treatments so far.Most people require 3 total.It seems far fetched and to be honest I was desperate so I did itmy BF asked me 3 days after my first treatment, when I was going again?He had seen an improvement after just one session and so did I, physically.I have CFS and suffer severe/debilitating muscle and joint painI have improved with the pain 80% after just 2 treatmentsThe muscle weakness is not the same as not being able to use them due to weakness caused from lack of use. There is a physical underlying cause for the weakness.Look into ways to make yourself better.Research CFS. There is alot of info on it, everywhere

  • This needs to be checked out properly. There are any one of a number of conditions that could cause this and it is difficult to speculate. This sounds like it is getting quite serious and needs investigation promptly. Inability to walk is not a normal symptom of ME.

  • I agree with Kenn. See your doctor and demand to see a neurologist as a start!
