• 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 very welcome to join Phoenix Rising if you have ME/CFS, suspect you may have it, or have an ME/CFS-like condition such as dysautonomia, MCAS, fibromyalgia or Long COVID.

    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.

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

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

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