Participate in our Survey-Based Research

You can contribute to our knowledge of chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and related syndromes by participating in statistical, survey-based studies. For this research, we need responses from those suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia (FM), ME, CFIDS, and related conditions. We also need data from healthy individuals, and from those with other medical conditions, to provide baselines and contrast.

If you wish to participate in these investigations, there are several questionnaires that you may complete on-line. The data from these questionaires will help us determine which treatments may be effective for, and better delineate the key symptoms and nature of, CFS, FM, and related illnesses. All research findings will be posted on this site as soon as sufficient data are available for analysis.

If you decide to participate in our research, here are some things you should know:

Below are links to some of the questionnaires and surveys that you may complete on-line to help us learn more about chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and related illnesses:

Research Results and Personal Profiles

Results of our research will be posted as data become available. Both general findings and personal profiles may be accessed on this site. To retrieve individual-specific or personal data, the ID Code used when completing the questionnaire(s) will be required.

Information about Chronic Fatigue (CFS) and Fibromyalgia (FM)

Here are some good sites from which you can learn more about chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, CFIDS, ME, and related syndromes.

Interesting Fact: At the turn of the century, neurasthenia was a common disorder. Later, the diagnostic category found its way into the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory, or MMPI, which contains a neurasthenia scale. Characterized by undue fatigue on the slightest exertion, the disorder is likely to be the same one known to us today as chronic fatigue syndrome.
