The situation with Neurologists is utterly abysmal Pollycbr125. Have you tried ringing some of the local ME group leaders in areas you can visit? The MEA has a list on their website. Usually the group contacts know very well who is good in their area and who to avoid. If you see any consultant for ME or CFS and you have not vetted them before-hand you run the risk of being labeled mentally ill and having that on your records or having your time/energy wasted. There are always pleasant surprises of course. I'd not had one with a Neurologist but there are sure to be some good ones somewhere. If you write to Dr Chaudhuri he may even suggest one?
