There seems to be a lot of debate over what the ME/CFS full recovery rates are. As I'm sure you're all aware, studies seem to show it as low as 5%, though that could be because they're recruiting participants from the sickest patients. Since falling ill, I've had a ton of people coming up to me that say they've had friends or relatives with m.e., who are now back to 100%. So what's going on? Did those people have "true" m.e. in the first place, I noticed a lot say they had recovered within a few years but they were definitely ill and it was definitely after a viral infection. I was wondering if any of you out there found the same thing. And if you asked your doctors, what did they say about recovery rates?
