A vital resource for patients and doctors!

When you or someone you love is suddenly stricken with a serious illness, you want an experienced, knowledgeable doctor to be able to diagnose and treat you efficiently and with sympathy. Unfortunately this isn't always possible, and victims of poorly understood illness often have to fight for recognition and appropriate treatment. The only way to avoid getting lost in the healthcare system or, even worse, to find yourself participating in prescribed treatment programs that may do more harm than good, is to arm yourself with as much knowledge as you can. The Nightingale Foundation is one of the few bodies dedicated to researching M.E. and disseminating useful information about the disease. It is also one of the few organisations to advocate the distinction between Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and what is commonly called Chronic Fatigue Syndrome - a crucial qualification. "The Clinical and Scientific Basis of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis--Chronic Fatigue Syndrome" is an unparalleled resource for patients and clinicians trying to understand this baffling illness. The Nightingale Foundation's ground-breaking definition of M.E. was drafted to quickly diagnose and effectively treat M.E. and also to "give comfort to M.E. patients everywhere." It seems like a large, intimidating reference book, but I can personally vouch for the comfort its been to me throughout my illness. Tested scientific facts are more reassuring than anything when you're ill and feel like you've been abandoned by the medical profession.

Excellent information from Dr. Byron Hyde

The information by Dr. Hyde in this book is essential to understanding what ME is. He has an excellent track record in the area of ME research, can't recommend his writings enough!

An essential M.E. textbook for patient and doctor alike

An excellent resource from Dr Byron Hyde MD (editor). This book is the one and only M.E. textbook. This book is essential reading for anyone with M.E., or an interest in M.E. Buy this book!!! Not all of the many chapters in this book are worthwhile or still current, BUT this book is well worth the price and the 5 stars even if only for the five or six chapters written by Dr Hyde, unarguably the world's leading M.E. expert. I'd also highly recommend you check out Dr Hyde's more recent writings. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

The clinical and scientific basis of Myalgic Encephalitis

Unbelievably insightfull to those who have or are sufferingfrom this devestating disease process .Every treating physicianshould have this in there office.In my personal observationswith some people I have met and also myself and my wife it isdefinetly and as a matter of medical fact a potential lifesaver.The fact that this author Dr. Byron Hyde has went to extremelenghts to study research and organise the world symposiumon this to gather varied medical research and facts from allthese brilliant minds tells me that this man deserves at thevery least a medal of Honour but rather the Nobel Peace Prizefor devoting at least 25 years of his life to studying andcaring enough to try and find the cause and cure of so much human suffering that exists in our world. My sincerest regards...P.S. I passed on the book to another fellow sufferer and neverreally got the chance to read very much but my doctor has one now.

Still worth reading after all these years...

Shortly after I was diagnosed with CFS and FM by Jay Goldstein, MD, I attended a "CFS and the Brain" conference at which Byron Hyde and several other researchers who appear in this book's pages spoke and shared their research and questions. Nearly a decade later, much of the information in this book is still germane - and interesting, such as the historical recounting of epidemics through the years, brain imaging patterns, neurocognitive abnormalities and more.If you aren't interested in this book for yourself, consider buying this book and donating it to your local public library or CFS/FM/MCS/ME or neuroimmune/autoimmune diseases support group so it can be read and learned from by those who are unable to afford it for themselves.
