It is terrible and has been going on for over a year now, because they began threatening her over a year ago. And severe m.e on its own is like being tortured. So what they are doing is awful

OUTRAGED on her behalf. Surely one of the Danish Doctors has seen a paper on ME by a fellow Doctor who has had the condition first hand. Incrediblly tragic that this is happening in 2013!! This is not the dark ages! She is not mentally incapable, the GP's seem devoid of any 'understanding' so why have they decided to ACT? Is she harming anyone, bieng cared for at home? I have ME and I work p/t looking after a lady who has had the condition for some 17 years now. To her parents 'FIGHT', 'FIGHT', 'FIGHT'. X

It is outrages. I often jokingly say, I would been better off in the dark ages, but when you read about Karina you realise it isn't a joke. It is deadly serious. At the beginning of my illness I was very fit, and tried to exercise my way back to health, but it made me worse. In the end I was bedridden. Thankfully, my GPs where simply ineffectual, which although not good to begin with. Did mean in the long run, I was left to learn and treat myself. Now I can get out of the house for short...

Yes these are people we turn to in our hour of need and all they can do is ridicule and mistreat you. And the most disgusting thing is they have law on their side

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

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 :-(

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

When will this barbaric treatment stop!! I've been a sufferer fir 30 years and let me tell you people DO NOT want to be this ill. Their is no secondary gain what so ever. Please lok at the 5,000 biomedical research articles showing MAJOR problems in the brain and in autoimmunity.

The World Health Organization has recognized ME as a distinct debilitating neurological disease for decades. I know a test for it has not yet been developed but remember that MS was treated as "hysterical paralysis" before tests were developed for it.

My Aunt suffered through that misdiagnoses for her MS. She woke up blind one morning and her doctors diagnosed her with "hysterical blindness" and told her husband to put things in her path so that she would fall when walking around their home. They told him she would get tired of falling and decide to see again.

She was finally properly diagnosed 15 years later, after her husband had left her for "refusing to see". She died 2 years later from complications to the disease.

I myself suffer from either ME or a similar illness and have for the last 2 years. I have yet to get a diagnoses and have had doctors laugh at me and belittle me instead of helping. That so called professionals can act in this matter is appalling.

I'm so sorry to hear about your Aunt. It is so shocking that these misdiagnose still go on, simply because Doctors are to arrogant to admit their own limitation. And since becoming ill myself and seeing it first hand and hearing stories about it. Not only from m.e but a whole spectrum of illnesses. I've been shocked into the realisation that the people we unthinkingly put all our trust in do not always deserve our trust. And as you point out it isn't just an m.e problem it is much more wide spread than that
