    One of those versus threads again :rofl:

    I'm curious to know, if you've been a patient of Dr Enlander or Dr Elena Frid and how they approach CFS. I'm not in the states and considering consulting with either over the phone - in conjunction with my local doctor.

    I was a patient of dr. Frid. She doesn't treat ME/CFS, or at least, did nothing for me. She leans towards the opinion that it's always an infection, i.e. Lyme disease, which I think is a much too narrow and simplistic approach. I don't think neurology as a field currently has much in way of solutions for us until research progresses further, so not sure it's worthwhile.

    I am not lucky enough to have that choice yet. I need to get several tests done.

    Did she offer plasmapheresis? I've heard of her using it in conjunction with IVIG

    Not to me Jesse.. she didn't offer me anything. But it was about 3 years ago, so perhaps she does that now.

    Nope, I'm in a country in Asia where CFS is unknown so my best bet is to find a doctor who can work with my local doctor. I cannot travel either due to health reasons plus getting a medical visa based on CFS is hard so these two doctors are my best bet....

    but do these 2 doctors do that without seeing you? I thought that was not allowed..

    They cannot prescribe anything or treat me, they'll only collaborate and guide my physician in the right direction.
