Search for NIH Research Funding Awards by yourself

If you're interested in investigating US National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding for ME research, you can find some interesting bits of information available on the NIH's "RePORTER" search website.

For example, here are the results of a simple search for "me/cfs 2021":

From searching this website, I just learned the incredibly relevant fact that Ron Davis's middle name is "Wayne"!

What will you learn?

Sorry for all the repeated posts in this thread but thinking about it further i would have made different investments if i were the NIH. I won't name specifics to not piss off people but there are a few in there i would not have granted and others i would have granted instead.

THANK YOU....I"ve tried to find this type of info for about the last six months, failing every time.

Somebody is getting all this funding and WHO is it?

So I guess its news to me Ron Wayne Davis GOT over $700K to do something ME related.

I was still running on Turned Down for Idiotic Reasons. Of course we don't know what else was turned down, but finally a location where one can better understand What is getting the funding.

I must say, I am very pleasantly surprised to see the high quality of research being proposed and to see a diverse group of researchers involved. I feel truly heartened.

Of course, the dollar amounts are still too low, we could use many more researchers, and it will take a number of years before the results of these research efforts are published. (And they should all be published, no matter what the results are.)

The only funding for any type of psychiatric theory of ME is a mere $129,379 for Daniel Clauw of the University of Michigan. For many years, Daniel Clauw and others in Minnesota, Michigan, Belgium, and Spain have been promoting a loose theory called "central sensitization syndrome", which they occasionally argue is a single condition that includes "temporomandibular disorders (TMD), fibromyalgia (FM), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), vulvodynia (VVD), interstitial cystitis/painful bladder syndrome (IC/PBS), painful endometriosis (ENDO), chronic tension type headache (cTTH), migraine headache (MI), chronic low back pain (cLBP), and myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS)." They have sometimes argued that the "overly-sensitized nerves" in this/these condition(s) might be treated with behavioral modification.

I have used EFT (the tapping protocols) in tense situations, relative to my "hyperactive" bladder.

Its helped relax the bladder. Now, this is tied to when its associated with some anxiety. So the act of "tapping"...is, I think, sometimes working to short circuit some of this circuitry.

Example- driving thru San Francisco, is a long run without a bathroom and I am generally stressed out about it. A place we found to stop, if dire, isn't easy or fun. So I get really anxious. I am no fun to travel with.

Well my daughter is driving and I tap away and you tap points and do the eye maneuvers and there is a type of short circuiting and this loop calms down.

It did not work me on the airplane with horrific bladder spasms, (and on half a Xanax). I was in a really acutely bad state of inflaming, ME PEM and travel stress. But it helps San Francisco....
