North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb will attend a special screening of the feature documentary film Unrest at the Sheringham Little Theatre next week.
The film, made by Jennifer Brea, tracks her own story and that of her partner Omar, as they are both struck down with a severe virus.
While Omar rapidly recovers, Jennifer ends up bed-bound with mysterious symptoms which are initially misdiagnosed as being psychosomatic, then eventually diagnosed as being due to ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
This screening has been organised in conjunction with the Sheringham ME/CFS Support Group, the only group based specifically in north Norfolk.
The condition is thought to affect as many as 6,000 patients in Norfolk alone and as many as 250,000 patients across the UK. The screening will be followed by a Q&A panel with Norfolk-based experts and patients.
