    Hope my articles may help. We’re on the same page re ME. For Nicola…your care is the best treatment available. Every bit of exertion used to get to a doctor is energy diverted from use by her immune system. and doctors do not have an effective treatment. Carefully evaluate each visit, because the exertion will have caused harm…..was there a benefit that was greater than that harm? If not…..Some even long- term patients start to improve once they have ‘given up’.
