POTS/Dysautonomia/ME/CFS in the News:
This page includes both news articles, usually taken from town or city newspapers, and scholarly journal articles that discuss any of the above conditions, or just chronic illness in general. In case there is any confusion, I did NOT write any of the articles listed below, nor am trying to imply that I did. The author of each article is listed below.
I have included any article I could find, no matter how minor, as I support all efforts to increase awareness of chronic illness. I am not, in any way, supporting the accuracy of the information contained in these articles. If you notice an error regarding the description, symptoms or treatment listed in an article below, please comment on that article. Let’s clear up any misconceptions!! Lastly, please consider submitting an article or writing a letter to the editor for your local paper. If you need information on how to do that, I’m happy to help.
