Radio item about ME/CFS Esther Rantzen talks to Dr Charles Shepherd the medical advisor to the ME Association , can be heard on Radio BBC Berkshire http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/radio/bbc_radio_berkshire Item starts at 1hr 49min and phone ins are scattered near the end of show. Dr Shepherd seems rather up-beat about this disease finally being taken seriously. He briefly mentions Nov 1st Blood ban and says that the MRC is now taking ME more seriously. Esther Rantzens daughter has had ME for many years. But Esther is not as clued up as she thinks. These are some of the facts she mentioned.. People can spontaneously recover. 60% fully recover and 10 % remain ill. The lightening Process helped her daughter. One of the callers phoned, she briefly talked about donating to WPI. Esther suggested donating to AfME and The ME association . Somehow i just don't trust that the MRC is taking any further action that will benefit us.
