"Require: specify as compulsory." I guess there is a winky face emoji somewhere in those BMJ guidelines. How commonly does use the hidden "or whatever" clause in their policies? Most of the time? Some of the time? Just for friends?

problems. Overlapping entry and recovery criteria that meant it was possible to enter the trial get worse and be recovered at the end. Recovery was set at the physical functioning of an octogenarian or someone with heart failure.

has affected me every single day of my life since I was 14yo. It’s been 35 years and it’s still dismissed by most medical practitioners. I’m not lazy or faking it - I BURN TO LIVE MY LIFE TO THE FULLEST, but am constantly hampered by my health. Thread👇

If you are looking for a place to give your charity dollars to please considering donating to the End project. The disease is as devastating as MS and HIV, but it has no biomarker or treatment. Every dollar you donate will help science progress.

Hopefully the first of many steps on the way to health equality for this neglected disease.👍 We have had many empty promises over the years. Looking forward to the first sincere efforts that will end the status quo of discrimination, much of the disease impact is caused by it.

The PR piece where their claims of being "silenced" were published in a worldwide media release by Reuters and re-published in several national newspapers.

Wessely recently had yet another attack on the ME community published. This is who he is, he made this choice long ago. The only positive step he could take is retract everything and admit he made terrible mistakes. Until then, every lie incurs a debt to the truth...

And it is absolutely not ad hominem to point someone else's professional mistakes. Sharpe and Wessely choose to dismiss all legitimate criticism of their work and that is their choice but that does not make it personal. Their research is lousy and that's all that matters.

had null results and low-quality data so this point is irrelevant. There are no effective treatments and there is no onus on anyone to show that there is anything better than something-that-failed otherwise the thing-that-failed-should-stand. Specious logic, prof.

Link seems valid but a bidirectional effect is untestable. At issue is reckless implementation of tenuous links by ideologues, far too common and unchecked. Critical steps are skipped in translating conjecture to practice with research on effect too underwhelming to justify.

I certainly don’t buy into the idea that positive attitudes can somehow mysteriously directly influence physical health outcomes. Illnesses are not the context for teaching people to be positive or to find benefit in their predicament. by

If you want to understand why climate change is an urgent, existential crisis, this thread is probably the best I've ever seen. And, it's written by one of the scientists who wrote the IPCC report.

Unless what they recognize here is their influence and what power they can wield with that influence. Which is more likely to be the case than some epiphany about great power bringing great responsibility, at least if past behavior is a reliable indicator.

It's a controversial issue because so much of the "evidence", despite being subjective, has been promoted in total contradiction with patient experience. This fact is usually met with indifference so your interest is appreciated. It's a complex issue with no simple answer.

It's usually preferable to rely on actual experts for evidence-based advice. The panel on the right is awfully ignorant, clearly the product of someone who does not know the first thing about this disease. Let actual experts handle things. Making stuff up isn't useful.

And plenty of us never gained weight. I'm 155lbs at 6'1". This invalidates that hypothesis. An invalidated hypothesis should be put to rest, and yet it is still abused constantly as a gotcha. Shifting goalposts are a reliable feature of bad science and dishonest researchers.

More importantly: deconditioning cannot fluctuate, a key feature of ME. One can't go from not deconditioned to deconditioned and back again within days. Not how any of this works. It also basically ignores 90% of the illness. As a hypothesis this is as weak as it gets.
