.What Is Myalgic Encephalomyelitis?
Dr Byron Hyde in Canada has definite ideas
we assume he uses good science
to be fair most of what I’ve read seems to me to be very good research.

.Dr Rob Yates, who worked in the Sudan in the midst of their famine keeping as many children & babies alive as he could Later he worked at the local Aboriginal Co-op where, one Sat arvo he was on call doc and took a phone call from my then partner.
He came to the house & after taking a look at me lying collapsed in the bed and rang an ambulance and the hospital and I was admitted pronto! I have very vague recollection of that day, except relief to have finally found a doctor who didn’t just dismiss me as hysterically neurotic.
He later said if I’d been left in that bed another 24 hours without treatment I’d have died…3 & a half years: bronchitis, pneumonia lung infections coughing blood diarrhoea vomitting and so so so much pain
and not one so called doctor in the area would put a stethoscope to my chest. just tell me to go back to the psychiatrist…and the shrink who was crazier than his patients saying What are you coming to me for? Go see a GP.
And this almost killed me.
To Dr Rob Yates I owe my life. He not only made sure I didn’t die just yet, he also got me out of bed, onto my feet, move into my own house (away from the ex) and take up the reins of being a real mother to my toddler daughter..
Under his care my illness gained a name.
