Doctor Speedy and ME
in search of medical honesty
Thanks Dr Speedy.
Hope you are doing ok today Dr Speedy-I think Lipkin will find something in his own research soon enough!-Hilary
Hope you are feeling better, Dr. Speedy..I am encouraged by your continuing to fight for ME, love, Hope
Sadly, there can be no help for those of us with ME, Ramsey/Hyde, so long as FDA collapses the diagnoses of CFS and ME, as NIH just did,"The disabling disorder known as chronic fatigue syndrome or myalgic encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME)"Lipkin, 2012. Drugs for people with fatigue will not help ME, in fact might harm us as they will not be tested on an ME patient population.
Recently, the only way I can get medical treatment of my classic case of acute, infectious onset ME, is by my doctors' using the more inclusive diagnosis of Viral encephalitis, then listing other specific diagnoses. Fortunately I have no history of any psychiatric disorder. The NHS would categorise my ME as CFS/ME, refuse medical testing and send me to the psychiatrists who insist on GET and CBT.
