• Planning to Register on Phoenix Rising?

    Phoenix Rising is an online discussion forum and community for patients with the illness myalgic encephalomyelitis / chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). You are invited to join Phoenix Rising if you have ME/CFS, suspect you may have it, or have been diagnosed with an ME/CFS-like condition such as dysautonomia, MCAS, fibromyalgia or Long COVID, which you think might be ME/CFS-related.

    If you are a caregiver of an ME/CFS patient, a researcher, a journalist, a physician or other medical professional, you are also welcome to join the forum, provided you plan to post about ME/CFS issues. Generally we do not allow people to join the forum to post about health issues unrelated to ME/CFS; this is in order to keep this forum focused on ME/CFS and its related conditions.

    To register an account, press the Register button at top right.

    If you decide to join Phoenix Rising, please read our forum rules before posting.

    Note that we do not allow spammers on the forum, and we manually vet all new registrations and keep a close eye on forum posts in order to detect and eject spammers. To post links to or promote a business you own or work for, you must first obtain permission from a moderator.

    If you are a researcher looking for study participants, please contact a moderator prior to posting on the forum.
