Chronic Fatigue Syndrome & Fibromyalgia Global Map


View Chronic Fatigue Syndrome & Fibromyalgia Global Map in a larger map

We’ve mentioned this map before, when it was new, but I thought I’d pop back to have a look at how it has progressed.

It asks for those who are actually diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia or both and, I feel, we have to assume that people have been honest about their diagnosis, just as we must assume that their doctors’ diagnostic capacity was working correctly in the first place.

The map has the limitations that it can only display those people who are online and have heard of and registered on the map and, then it would appear skewed to include only those patients for whom English is a 1st or 2nd language.

But all that notwithstanding, there are a LOT of pins on that map and, if you take nothing else away from it, it has to be patently obvious that it simply cannot be within the realms of any logic or possibility for that many people to independently “imagine” their illness symptoms and, as prevalent (and real) as psychological disorders are, I feel the weight of this evidence alone – the sheer numbers – also makes it impossible for these to be psychological in nature either. “Mass hysteria” on this scale? No, it’s way beyond reason.

And, thankfully, scientific evidence is beginning to prove it.

Scientific evidence has been proving it for years. Certain interests have ignored it for years.

The truth won't stay hidden forever.
