BOOK: The burden of CFS in Canada


Senior Member
That first link is dead on about not enough care for CFS/ME/EBV in Canada.I have to tell my family doc what to prescribe as he hasn't a clue.Whatever Doc Klimas suggest he'll do thankfully.But we have no labs that will do any extensive blood work and most of our doctors aren't interested because there's no money,grants or incentive for them.Socialized Medicine is great when you have a common malady but when you're out of the box it's south of the border we go if we can.I'm so grateful I have doctor klimas in my life and this site.
