    Not sure if it's here or somewhere else. There is information about how much NIH spends a year on MS versus CFS. Does anyone know where this is? Also, I think I saw figure of how much money NIH gives to studies that are not CFS, but they claim it is for CFS.

    This is ridiculous the recovery act gave extra research dollars to everyone from Aging (Aging is a illness--really now?) to Vulvodynia but nothing for us. .:Retro mad:

    De nada. I happened to be looking at it the day before. Combined wirh disease population numbers for comparison this can be valuble info. Using fibro numbers might be a thought since we really overlap and I think fibro (alone?) is much more common than CFS.
