International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    Jenny,

    I'd love to know where you have had this test performed. Wondering if there are other places that offer it besides by Dr. P in Washington DC.

    No supplements listed. But simple information.

    It would be nice to get a study published comparing results from a random selection of CFS patients (by the criteria he thinks best) to be compared with inactive controls, rather than have him just present results from particular patients. These sorts of problems are definitely important for a subsection of CFS patients, but I'm still not clear on how many, or to what an extent.

    (edit: The above sounds rather unenthusiastic - even though for personal reasons I'm actually rather grateful to Dr.Pocinki, it seems that I often just sound terse!)

    Thanks Astro, I didn't see these. However, these are treatments for OI. He doesn't mention this in his piece so I'm not sure how OI relates to what he says about autonomic dysfunction.

    I had it done at the Breakspear Hospital, Hemel Hempstead, UK.
