International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    OK I I'd suggested the last blog was the last in the series but I've been keeping this under my hat.

    Part I suggested that ME/CFS patients, if tested, might have a deficit in sensory gating (the brain's ability to efficiently process sensory information to discriminate between vital and trivial input).

    Was I right?

    I also suggested that ME/CFS might comprise 'sub-groups' of patients similar to ADHD which includes the hyperactive, inattentive and mixed types.

    Is there any evidence for this?

    Part V focuses on a large but largely under-reported Japanese study that investigated information processing, autonomic function and higher level brain function in childhood 'CFS' with pretty shocking results.
