I am a bit jealous that the Northwest has no ME/CFS doctors or researchers. Dr. Robert Bennett at OHSU has been one of the most recognized FM specialists, but I can not find anyone who deals with ME/CFS.
Amazing since looking at the history it seems that the Portland area support group brought the term CFIDS into existance and was a major force until it disbanded.
Also the WPI research contained samples from Oregon, what doctors were those samples taken from and sent to WPI or into Dr. Petersons long term biobank?
A clear departure from Dr. Loveless' view that is quoted on a number of CFS sites "Dr. Mark Loveless, an infectious disease specialist who runs an AIDS and CFS clinic at OHSU, stated that a CFIDS patient feels every day significantly the same as an AIDS patient feels two months before death. His statement was supported by data from clinical research conducted at OHSU and by the experience of other CFS experts."
It seems our local teaching hospital and research center has succumb to the Reeves/Wessley view and might as well be part of the British NHS.
