The latest work by Professor Michael Sharpe on his ongoing PACE study for CFS/ME - which aims to use a combination of cognitive behavioural therapy and exercise - has recently published in the Lancet. Analysis here - nhs.uk/news/2015/10October/...
But the CFS/ME "community" are not happy with most patient advocate groups and spokespeople rubbish the study and the work of Professor Sharpe.
I certainly don't claim to be an expert but I am puzzled by the hostility shown to this field of research. CBT and exercise has proven to be effective for cases of chronic pain caused by purely physical conditions such as back pain and arthritis. So why not CFS?
