Book Description

27 Oct 2011
A few notes on this NEW revised and expanded edition which includes Dr. Hyde's chapter from the new Puri & Treasaden textbook: "Thirty years ago when a patient presented to a hospital clinic with unexplained fatigue, any medical school physician would have told the students to search for an occult malignancy, cardiac or other organ disease or chronic infection. The concept that there is an entity called chronic fatigue syndrome has totally altered that essential medical guideline. Patients are now being diagnosed with CFS as though it were a disease. It is not. It is a patchwork of symptoms that could mean anything. The original concepts of searching for occult disease are relevant to patients today with CFS, ME and other fatiguing illnesses. Furthermore, because you do not find pathology does not mean there is none."- Byron Hyde

5.0 out of 5 stars Should be a mandatory read in Med school! 25 Aug 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Anyone who has been diagnosed as having M.E. will benefit from reading this book. The Nightingale Organisation and Dr Byron Hyde (Canada and sadly not the UK) actually DO work towards researching this illness. UK Patients, who have had to go through the frustrating, degrading and laughable NHS system in the UK can, from this book, learn PROPERLY about their illness. Best of all they will probably feel better about themselves and realise that there are firm, medically proven facts to properly diagnose this illness. In the UK you may wait months and months to see a neurologist WITHOUT any substantial work up having been done before you present to neurology- astonishingly bad! Best of all as you read, there will be no NHS GP scoffing, no receptionists looking gormless and no one insisting that by trying to find out about your illness that you are in desperate need of a psych referral for treatment of non existent depression, non existent anxiety or a slew of other labels quickly pinned on M.E. Sufferers. I thoroughly recommend this book if you are serious about learning about M.E., .... And need concise information to present to the slew of individuals who have no real idea about it's cause but who treat any ailment you might present with as " probably your M.E. causing this!" without knowing, believing or accepting that the illness is real in the first place! Yes - do read this book. You will understand your illness so much better.

At last a doctor who has a thorough understanding of M.E. Read this book and you too can have a proper appreciation of the condition. Its not all in the mind and its not going to get better from just thinking positive thoughts (though that can't ever be a bad thing!). But it can be made worse by not having the facts.

If you think you have M.E. and especially if you contracted it recently then this is a MUST READ NOW! Do the right things now and you can get much better. Do the wrong things, ie too much activity or especially Graded Exercise (GET) and you could get much worse.

Why is no one using this as a basis of a documentary on the disease?

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly Informative 16 April 2012
By Anna
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An amazingly informative book on M.E. All patients with M.E., their carers and Doctors should have a copy.

If you are a patient with M.E. I would advise that you buy a copy for yourself and recommend or send a copy to everyone you know in relation to your care (friends, family, Social Workers, Doctors, Medical Consultants, DWP Advisers).
