ME and chronic fatigue: 'Some doctors don't believe you're sick'
A 22-year-old who suffers from ME says some doctors do not believe the disease exists and patients struggle to get the care and support they need.
Millie Earp said she was initially dismissed by her family GP and was only diagnosed "by the luck of the draw" five months after she fell ill aged 17.
The situation for patients in Wales has been described as "scandalous" by the ME Association.
The Welsh Government said health boards were responsible for their patients.
