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.

    Is there an increase in birth defects among GWS?
    Some reports have suggested there is (Download) http://birthdefects.org/wp/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/VA-Presentation-GW.pdf
    What I find interesting about this is the defects are mostly clustered under Neurocristopathy https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neurocristopathy
    I myself have Axenfeld Riegers syndrome and a parental connection to Singapour and post world war 2 but not GWS
    Are there any stats on birth defects in children born to mothers with FM ME/CFS and is there an increase in Autistic spectrum disorders in offspring?

    @wastwater Interesting graphs. Double the birth defects for some defects. We know correlation isn't causation but still...

    What is Singapour and post world war 2? Are they toxic syndromes too?
