    As there are so few doctors treating ME in Scotland, I'm clutching at straws here!
    I've just heard about Dr. Chaudhuri. Has anyone seen him and what was your
    experience? What treatments were offered? Any information will be much
    appreciated.

    I have an appointment with Dr Chaudhuri in January. I am looking forward to see a ME specialist neurologist first time.

    Thank you very much for that...I'm certainly tempted to make an appointment. It's always a matter of where best to channel the funds for maximum benefit and progress...I'm also thinking about going the route of Prof. De Meirleir.

    Can I just mention that I listened to Kaye Adam's recent Radio Scotland programme on ME and I was silently applauding the points you made! The programme deserved to be much longer as so much more needed to be said about this shockingly neglected illness. Or should I say 'invisible' illness, certainly in Scotland.
