OK. I shall plead ignorance here. How does the ICD affect any medical decisions made in terms of my healthcare within the NHS or outside of the NHS if I had private insurance. Note: I had private insurance and had no problems at all with gaining investigations based on my diagnosis of ME or anything else. I am perfectly happy to be enlightened with some links if anyone has the time. Also the extent to which ME in the ICD and CFS in the ICD and PVFS in the ICD can influence my treatment i.e. what difference do the differing distinctions actually make. Thanks in advance and no I am not taking the piss. Am genuinely interested.
