Eligibility Criteria:

  • Adults at least 18 years of age

  1. pLEASE CHANGE THE HEADER ON THIS SURVEY IF IT IS ONLY FOR MS LUPUS AND CANCER. I JUST WASTED ALOT OF PRECIOUS ENERGY I DID NOT REALLY HAVE ON THIS SURVEY AND HONESTLY AM ANNOYED.

    1. Hi J.L., we just got confirmation from the researchers that the study IS accepting participants with ME/CFS. They’re looking for more help getting participants with the other diseases but don’t worry, your submission was not wasted. Thank you for taking the time to participate and I apologize for the confusion!

  2. I have just spend a good 45 minutes completing this survey and though I felt some questions were relevant many (especially towards the end ) were not – if I have had this condition for such a long period of time I do not see the relevance of questions re changes in the last 4 weeks. Also asking an ME patent to concentrate on something like this for 45 minutes – get real. I have had ME for over 20 years now – failed to be diagnosed for that time by my GP and fobbed off by various practitioners as ‘just being a bit stressed’

  3. This survey is quite simple and should only take 20-25 minutes to complete. You can even stop at any point and return. Note that it is for people with ME/CFS, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, and any type of cancer so please forward it accordingly to other people. Dr. Leonard Jason has done an enormous amount of work toward a definition of ME/CFS and the study of fatigue and has published more than numerous papers. Your work won’t be for naught. Marcie Myers

  4. I hope the results go on to help ME/CFS sufferers in some way. I’ve had CFS for 19 years and there are more unanswered questions than answered unfortunately.
