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.

    I've been looking and I don't see any topic about Dr. Chia as a clinician. Has anyone here actually been to him for general CFS care?

    My impression has been that he is all about the enteroviruses and might not have a well-rounded clinical approach (i.e. looking at and treating various symptoms; knowing what to do about OI; which pain meds are best; giving good advice on other meds like immune modulators; etc.) But I really don't know for sure. Does anyone here have first hand experience with his treatment approach?

    In my ideal world, I'd go to see Nancy Klimas (and I might do that after all) but...she's in Miami and Dr. Chia is here in the LA area. So I thought I'd double check on Chia before writing him off.

    I see Dr. Chia. I like him. I do have Coxsackie B3 and B4 infections. Oxymatrine has helped me. Since you live in the area, I would certainly give him a try. Heck I travel from out of state to see him, so I must like him. :)

    Best, Timaca
