The Center is collecting information from both ME patients and sedentary controls.
- You will first have a quick phone call to determine eligibility.
- If eligible, you will meet with a doctor (theirs or yours) to be examined or for blood and urine tests.
- Then you will complete questionnaires.
- Finally, you will do a two-day CPET (two exercise tests separated by 24 hrs), with blood collection before and after the test.
- 10 days before and 10 days after, you will wear a wrist-watch device (presumably a FitBit or similar) to monitor your vitals.
