About Phoenix Rising
  • Phoenix Rising provides people with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) with information and online programs they can use to enhance their health and well-being. Through our programs under development patients will be able to find more effective physicians, make better treatment choices, build communities and thrive as a patient group.

    The Phoenix Rising forums is the largest ME/CFS forum and contains the largest database of articles and posts about ME/CFS on the web. The forums also host member blogs and an interactive chat room.
