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.

    This comes from the Murdoch Children's Research Institute in Melbourne Australia. A wrist-worn monitor that finds measurable dfferences in sleep between sufferers and non-sufferers.

    Due warning: the report commits all the sins of low-effort news reporting, including dodgy graphics and substitution of the term chronic fatigue for me/cfs. The research itself looks okay.

    (I can't find a publication that supports the claims yet but have contacted the researcher to ask)

    It's a one minute 40 second video, so even though I don't know what hrv is I can tell you that the video didn't answer your question. It's described as actigraphy.
