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.

    The EMA is going to carry out a review of the possible link between HPV vaccine and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome and complex regional pain syndrome.

    More details in the BBC news report:

    A report from the MHRA (= UK Medicines and Health Products Regulatory Authority) has dismissed any link between HPV vaccine and ME/CFS. However, I am aware of a number of people who clearly link the onset of their ME/CFS to this vaccine and (as we inserted into the CMO Working Group Report on ME/CFS) vaccinations (which basically mimic the action of infections on the immune system) do occasionally act as trigger factors in the onset of ME/CFS.

    How can they dismiss the link when there is no epidemiological evidence of sufficient quality to judge either way? (eg studies with sample sizes large enough to have a statistically valid Beta value)
