“You are killing me”– Experimental treatment forced on a severely-ill ME patient

By Rebecca Hansen, chairman ME Association, Denmark

“You are killing me” is what severely-ill Danish ME patient, Karina Hansen, has repeatedly said to her nurses while she is being forced to receive a controversial and unproven treatment known as Graded Exercise Therapy (GET). Karina, 24, has Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) which is a neuro-immune illness. Much is still unknown about ME, but ME experts agree that ME patients have a dysfunction in their ability to produce energy and to recover from exercise or any type of exertion.
