From The ME Association.
An article by Melanie Newman was published in the British Medical Journal on 24 June, and included an interview with Dr Charles Shepherd (Hon. Medical Adviser to the ME Association).
While we did not see the final article before publication, and are not happy some of the opinion aired by certain professionals, it does attempt to provide an overview of the often conflicting opinions with regard to management – in particular the use of exercise – in ME/CFS and Long Covid.
Dr Shepherd has now had a Rapid Response published, that better explains the concerns we had with the article and how it could be read as adding to and not moving past any controversy.
