    Hi

    I have some information from MCS-Aware regarding the guidlines for severe cfs/me that says the relevant section regarding advice that chemical sensitivitites are foud in severe cfs/me are in chapter 7 "7.4.1" under support. However they seem to have been removed. Does anyone know anything about this?

    I've just looked through the current copy of the NICE Guideline's and under 7.4.1 there is

    "A full functional assessment of the personal and domestic needs of the patient
    within the home should be completed (for example, people with severe CFS/ME
    are often sensitive to light, noise and chemicals, so may require quiet, dark
    surroundings with no or limited use of household products such as cleaning
    products or air fresheners), as well as an assessment of the carer’s needs.
    Carers for people with severe CFS/ME will need support and healthcare
    professionals should provide information on the sources noted above. "
