Participate in DePaul’s research study comparing ME and CFS with other illnesses

DePaul University researchers invite persons with ME, CFS, MS, Lupus, and Cancer to participate in a voluntary research study to determine which symptoms may be commonly experienced by individuals in multiple fatiguing illness groups, and which symptoms may be unique to each illness. Participation includes completion of a confidential online questionnaire, which takes approximately 45 minutes to complete.
Eligibility Criteria:

  • Adults at least 18 years of age
  • Must be able to read or speak English
  • Have a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus Erythematosus, Cancer, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

  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.

      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

    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.
