Transverse Myelitis Society

Specialist support

Transverse Myelitis Society

transverse-myelitis-logoThe TM Society is a small UK based charity with over 1000 members whose main aim is to offer support to those who may have, or know someone with, Transverse Myelitis and its associated conditions such as ADEM, Neuro Myelitis Optica (NMO) and others.

They are manned by an entirely unpaid voluntary group of people who mostly have TM themselves.


The TM Society provide support via Support Group meetings held around the country, and are happy to answer telephone calls from TM patients, their families and friends. They have also held significantly impressive Conferences with world class speakers who are leaders in their field.

They know that TM affects roughly three to four people per million patients seen, so those with the condition may simply never meet anyone else with it and often find that their own GP knows little about it.

They feel it’s very important to make sure that people with the illness are able to meet with and talk to others in the  same position since we know that neurological conditions can be extremely isolating.


The TM Society are here to help and make sure that all those with TM feel as though they have a friendly ear to listen to  them. If there’s anything you would like to know or to discuss, get in touch. They would love to hear from you.


The TM Society has many resources where you can find further information and help with things like Managing Symptoms to Disabled Holiday Information.
