There is an estimated rate of between 7 and 3,000 ME/CFS sufferers in a population of 100,000. Between 836,000 and 2.5 million people in the US suffer from ME/CFS. Although there is not a known cause of ME/CFS, sufferers seem to have an inflammation of the dura and meninges that surround the spinal cord and brain. Immunological and endocrine abnormalities have been observed in some people with ME/CFS. Cannabinoids may help treat some of the symptoms of ME/CFS, e.g. chronic muscular & joint pain, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), heart palpitations and headaches.
