Educate GPs, Emergency Docs, and Neurologists on Myalgic Encephalomyelitis
Doctors need to be educated on ME, as well as a lot of complex chronic health issues. Most doctors I have seen don't know anything about ME, and when I've been assessed for other neuro conditions they have also often gotten information about those wrong. And doctors need to stop telling patients with illnesses like ME that we should be "glad" we don't have other, more easily diagnosed disabilities, when all of those disabilities are bad and so is ME. ME patients need doctors who know about ME, who are willing to try experimental treatments, and i some cases referrals for palliative care.
Why the contribution is important
ME patients currently get treated horribly by the health care system.
