Differences Between CFS/ME and Multiple Sclerosis


"Currently the only method of differential diagnosis of MS and CFS/ME is by looking at the symptoms. While all other kinds of neurological symptoms are common to both, optic neuritis (inflammation of the optic nerve) is typical of MS but unusual in CFS/ME (many other vision disturbances, however, are normal in CFS/ME). Paresthesias (abnormal sensations) are often associated with both, but tend to be more migratory (moving around) in CFS/ME.

"Severe post-exertional malaise is unique to CFS/ME."
