ME/CFS: A disease at war with itself
We can all agree that ME/CFS is a nasty disease, particularly in its severe form, but there are abundant nasty diseases in the world. What is unique and particularly confounding about our disease is that so much controversy surrounds it, and not only surrounds it, but invades it too.

    My family is Israeli and may have a conection to Dr. Shoenfeld. He is on my list of doctors to contact and may be a fresh break from the classic ME doctors...

    I was in contact with prof Schoenfeld 3 years ago, as I live in israel. Was very disapointed, he advised me to go for a consultation with one of his two assistants in Sheba Hospital. I was there twice to see Dr Nancy Agmon-levin at the Zabludowicz Center for Autoimmune Diseases at the Sheba Medical Center. She had a very poor understanding of the disease, dismissed the Ritux thing and prescribed antidepressants and a consultation with a neuro psychiater.
    :(

    Thanks Hanna. That's quite unfortunate - I was hoping he might be a fresh alternative but it sounds like a big let-down. He didn't do any tests on you to determine autoimmunity or what possible treatments might help?

    No anything. ME isn't recognized in Israel and CFS is not a priority! Sad.

    I suspect this to simply be another factor that can induce a strong enough immune response which leads to rapid development of the autoimmune processes and cycles in people who are predisposed to the condition.
