    Hi I have just read this from the ME Association and noticed that the new CMO for Capita, Dr Gargan, considers ME/CFS to be MUS.

    *He has a keen interest in MUS (medically unexplained syndromes) and regards ME/CFS as an MUS – rather like irritable bowel and fibromyalgia.

    When asked about his position on the WHO (neurological) classification of ME/CFS, he did not appear to be in favour of classifying ME/CFS as a neurological disease."

    This can't be good for people with ME applying for PIP and he seems to have taken it on himself to ignore and dismiss the WHO classification.
