Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) Even Worse In Japan Than US

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS) Even Worse in Japan Than U.S.
The IACFS/ME posted an article titled "Ministry of Health Survey Reveals Harsh Reality of ME/CFS Patients in Japan" by Japan ME Association president Mieko Shinohara reporting on a 2014 patient survey commissioned by the government. For the first time the survey attempted to include patients so severely ill that they are largely out of the reach of doctors.
It revealed that chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) is every bit as bad in Japan as it is in the U.S., the U.K., and other areas. No matter where you find it, ME/CFS is just a stunningly difficult disease.
Two hundred and fifty-one total patients were assessed; 22% were male and 78% female. The average age was 41.8 years old.
