Jess’ ME/CFS Blog
A young adult battling multiple debilitating chronic illnesses

Hi, I’m Jess- a 24 year old who started suffering from chronic illness, or more specifically Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis), at the age of 17. I’ve had asthma since childhood, so prior to that, and in more recent years have also been diagnosed with Chronic Facial Pain, IBS, Neurally Mediated Hypotension (a form of dysautonomia) with resultant Vasovagal Syncope (faints), suspected Gastroparesis (partial paralysis of the stomach), Functional Neurological disorder (with Functional Movement Disorder, Seizures/Non-Epileptic Attack Disorder and Functional Weakness elements) and hospital-related Post-Traumatic Stress. I am a student in the UK, currently on long-term medical leave for the second time. Follow my blog on facebook: https://www.fb.com/jesscfs or follow me on IG or twitter: @Jess_ME_CFS
