    Hello,

    Just wondering if anyone else on this forum is in Switzerland. Have you found a doctor who knows ANYTHING about this condition? Where?

    What is happening here to improve doctor awareness and patient rights? As far as I can tell this might just be one of the worst places of all to have this illness.

    Hi awol,

    eric_s is Swiss. Here's his intro post from May 3rd.

    Best wishes,
    Jerry

    PS: If it's any consolation, there are no doctors in Chicago who understand and treat ME/CFS. There are a few integrative doctors who are sympathetic, but they treat ME/CFS is if it were only general fatigue. I'd have to travel to see an experienced ME/CFS doctor. I'm too sick to do that, and I couldn't afford it anyway. :(

    Thanks for the contact Jerry.

    I am sorry to hear that things are bad in Chicago too. It really is a lot to ask of patients that we deal with being sick AND with paying for real research AND with educating doctors all at the same time. Craziness.
