In the 1980’s HIV/AIDS was the number one cause of death in young adults in the U.S. Whole countries were being decimated. The NIH promised it would commit ten percent of its entire budget to fight HIV/AIDS. Thirty years later it’s still giving ten percent of its budget to HIV/AIDS.
Times are changing though and HIV/AIDS historic set aside may be coming to an end. That means hundreds of millions of dollars of research funding could be opening up. The question is how much will ME/CFS and/or FM get?
Welcome to June’s #FacetsOfME! Facets of ME is an educational feature where we dive into a particular aspect (or facet) of ME and explore it more in depth. This month we are focusing on temperature dysregulation- heat and cold intolerance. It is surprising how difficult this symptom can be to manage until you experience it.
