The Inquest into the Death of Sophia Mirza
Today, 13th June 2006, the inquest into the death of Sophia Mirza was held in Brighton Coroners Court, England.
The cause of death was stated as
|'acute renal failure as a result of CFS'|
Two pathologists could not agree which name to use - CFS, ME or ME/CFS.
In the end it was stated that CFS is a modern word for ME.
This is why CFS was used on the death certificate.
The pathologist also said -
|'ME describes inflammation of the spinal chord and muscles. My work supports the inflammation theory. There was inflammation in the basal root ganglia.'|

Eileen Marshall and Margaret Williams
MEActionUK has many functions.
Firstly we are a discussion group or "chat room" open for anyone who has a personal or professional interest in the many issues surrounding the multi system impairing illness of neurological origin known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.).
Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome are all recognised as Neurological diseases by the World Health Organisation. See here and here for excerpts of ICD-10 that show the relevant entries for ME/PVFS and CFS.
MEActionUK is also an information resource.
