They have to find out what laws the doctors are using first before legal action can be taken. We should be receiving an update on her status this coming week.

Oh, no!!! This is every ME sufferer's worst nightmare. I suffer from ME, but I have been a bit more fortunate: my doctors in the USA have taken my illness seriously even when they couldn't offer much in the way of treatment. And I have (finally) laboratory tests showing that some of my immune cells aren't functioning, and some types of viruses that should be dead or dormant in my system are instead flourishing.
If Karina had been offered this type of testing, she, too, would show...

If Karina had been offered this type of testing, she, too, would show abnormalities. But doctors who don't want to take the disease seriously don't offer anything except the old standard tests that won't show anything.
Not only are this young woman's civil rights being violated, this appalling act of medical malpractice is endangering her life.

Unfortunately, complaints from the patient community will be viewed as insignificant, since this type of medical professionals consider us to be nothing more than chronic complainers anyway. These "doctors" need to hear from other doctors; the ones who actually specialize in ME research. And no, that doesn't mean the ones from Kings College in London. They should contact the IACFS/ME and chat with some of the professionals who have been truly researching this disease, not those who have been making money by trivializing it.

Very true Elsie, but hopefully it will add weight to the arguments already being put forward to the Danish Government. And if it make one minister think twice about it. Then it's been a success

In the U.K. nearly everyone also believes its “all in the mind” physiological etc .. strangely enough the only people who do believe it is a real physiological condition are medical experts, doctors, professors etc etc … ironic really, as the most intelligent, educated and trained people who actually know about it, know it is “real”, yet all the half educated (or brainwashed by the tabloid / gutter press) think they have the right even to have an opinion, despite the fact that its based on...

This must be a human rights violation - why isn't it being taken to the european courts? They would have to consider medical evidence from around the world showing that there are physical problems behind this illness. They could kill her, there is certainly no evidence her condition has improved.

Sadly, that path takes money. Most people haven't even enough to go to their own courts, especially when governments are stripping back the legal aid funding.

She and her family are being assisted, BUT, due to the fact the Doctors/Facility/Government people involve refuse to answer any questions, provide and paperwork, they might do harm to her case. They are watching things very closely and are proceeding with various legal options to try to get access to the very basic information so that they may find out WHY she was forcibly taken and under which laws she is being held without her consent.

I also had chronic ME and I left me severely disabled and bed bound for just over 10 years. I was not treated with understanding by British doctors, their ignorance was disgusting.

I also had chronic ME and I left me severely disabled and bed bound for just over 10 years. I was not treated with understanding by British doctors, their ignorance was disgusting. I was left at home suffering in pain and sever disability and they did not care or try and help. At the time the NHS did not train their doctors to understand or treat the illness. I was only given help 8 years ago when dr obrien at Southend hospital discovered my plight and approached the primary care trust for funding to send me to the chronic fatigue syndrome unit at old church hospital under professor Finley. I was great full of the opportunity to get my life back and worked hard. I left hospital a year later well enough to live on my own. Another year later I had made a full recovery. I am living proof that even the most severely effected ME sufferers can be treated successfully and make a full recovery. All it takes is doctors to recognise the serious nature of the illness and try and help.

I've been sectioned several times too. I've been becoming more and more sick for the past 2-3 years. I'm in constant pain, constantly fatigued lethargic and hungry - and a few days ago, I noticed my spine was curved!
