I neglected to post this before, and now I urge you to take action on this. If you have read Wikipedia, WebMD, etc. you have seen that they turn a blind eye to the fact that the Oxford criteria studies are CFS in name only. When the fact is, it is not CFS, in any way shape or form. It is not even a valid variation, considering that it only has one symptom. Unless something is done about this, the "common knowledge" will continue to be based on these studies. What is even more disheartening is when our best medical advocates fall into the same trap. Try reading book by our favorite allies that include a review of GET studies. They ALWAYS fail to point out what the Oxford criteria studies really are. The IACFS/ME is an organization that is friendly to us. And they are about to release their ME/CFS primer for doctors. If they get this wrong, sitting around here bitching and moaning will not help us a bit. We need to make sure they don't fall into the same trap as all the others. Don't assume they will get it right. That's what we did with CAA, and they ended up promoting the Oxford studies. Here is the contact info for IACFS/ME: http://www.iacfsme.org/ContactUs/tabid/118/Default.aspx Here is my letter to them. And remember, it is easier to send a letter now, than it is to write endless threads complaining about this later.
