PPS and statin myopathy[edit]

This really needs a source. The whole problem of PPS is not well understood - see the BMJ a few weeks ago. JFW | T@lk 21:14, 1 August 2005 (UTC)

My source is private communications with dozens of PPSers. I've encountered about a dozen who have experienced statin myopathy, and none who admit to having used statins and NOT having statin myopathy.
I must caution you for Original Research. You are probably right, but unless this has been documented in a reputable publication, it would not be suitable to include this in Wikipedia. The main reason is that this information (from your own experience) is not verifiable. Please let me know if there are any concerns.
What is your clinical background? JFW | T@lk 21:09, 2 August 2005 (UTC)

CFS[edit]

Dan, I know nothing much about Chronic fatigue syndrome but I see that a revert someone just made has cut some apparently good information out of the lead paragraph that you commented on recently, so you may want to put it back. The relevant passage that got altered being:

...number of features, the most common and notable one being severe fatigue, usually made worse by even modest exertion. It is regarded by many as an organic brain disease. Its exact cause is unknown, although many theories have been advanced, and it is currently considered by most authorities to be incurable, although some cases may resolve over time and medication can bring a degree of relief in some others.

Improving CFS/ME Article[edit]

Hi, I've noticed you used to contribute to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I recently nominated it as the Wikipedia:Improvement Drive. I feel that it needs urgent improvement, and if you agree please vote at the Improvement Drive project page. Thanks! Thedreamdied 02:21, 3 April 2007 (UTC)
