In ME and CFS[edit | edit source]

Several of the key symptoms observed by Melvin Ramsay and a part of his Ramsay definition involved muscle including muscle fatigability along with muscle pain and clumsiness (ataxia). Patients also complain of muscle fasciculations.

Numerous abnormalities have been found in the skeletal muscle of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis patients including:
