1/3 of ME cases wrongly diagnosed

“Third of ME cases ‘wrongly diagnosed’: Experts says thousands thought to have chronic fatigue actually have similar condition that can be treated”

This article is a bit scary, but misdiagnoses is a real issue (even though this article is about the UK and not America). When it comes down to diagnosis of ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia which involve excluding everything, it’s important that physicians actually exclude EVERYTHING. Too many doctors use the diagnoses as wastebasket diagnosis so they don’t have to use up their “valuable” time. Make sure your doctor doesn’t do this to you!

  1. Great article. My friends daughter was diagnosed with this. She was put on medication and is doing very well right now. It wasn't a quick fix, she missed school for a long time and it took a while to get adjusted but she's so much better now.
