    Someone should ask him what he thinks of ME/CFS

    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.
