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.

Chapter 33 of Hillary Johnson's: Osler's Web: Inside the Labyrinth of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) Epidemic is "HIV-NEGATIVE AIDS."
Neenyah Ostrom's book "America's Biggest Cover-up: 50 More Things...CFS & Its Link To AIDS" cites: "Some CFS Patients May Be Non-HIV AIDS Cases."
Will CFS ever make any progress unless we acknowledge this fact?

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.

And the most worrying thing is the UK is on of the most informed countries about m.e

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!

This all sounds very odd. Why was she removed from her home? Why no visitors? And, why can't she leave if she wants to

In Denmark, M.E. is classed as a psychosomatic illness. They removed her from her home. It's not the first time this has happened :-(

In the U.K., Sophia Mirza was sectioned, places in a mental institution and not given the proper medical care that she needed. Although she did get out, she died later :-(

our family's story shows they often get it terribly wrong and I am hoping by sharing it we can advocate for better treatment of Karina and every ME/CFS patient worldwide. www.bringingryanhome.com

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

I have had ME chronic fatigue syndrome for nearly 25 yrs. The first year or so i was bed bound. My mother and father had to care for me day in day out. I lost my career at the time, and was so fatigued I could not think.

I have had ME chronic fatigue syndrome for nearly 25 yrs. The first year or so i was bed bound. My mother and father had to care for me day in day out. I lost my career at the time, and was so fatigued I could not think.
I had virtually the same symptoms as this girl, and I was housebound for a while. Slowly i changed my diet to a purely vegan, and slowly at home started to exercise and move around. It took nearly 2yrs till I started to feel better etc.
Managing M.E at home, is the best and only thing to do, as hospitals and doctors still have no idea of how to manage it.
Eat well, naps, sleeps and plenty of love is the only way to start to improve.
I never got better , but I learnt to live with it.
