Exciting news! The U.S. ME/CFS Clinician Coalition has released new resources for people with ME/CFS to bring to their health care providers for diagnosis, testing, and treatment recommendations.
Read the Coalition Recommendations Announcement here.
The resources include a document on testing recommendations and a document on treatment recommendations to help patients and their healthcare providers with the overall care and management of ME/CFS.
OMFCA’s goal is to empower caregivers and people living with ME/CFS to manage their health today while we search for tomorrow’s answers. We hope you find these new documents to be helpful in navigating the complex world of ME/CFS.
Be sure to also check out OMFCA’s Resource Center! This webpage includes parent resources, information to share with your doctor, general information on ME/CFS, and more. We will continue to share with the community whenever the page has been updated with new, verified information.
About The U.S. ME/CFS Clinician Coalition:
The U.S. ME/CFS Clinician Coalition is a group of U.S. clinical disease experts who have collectively spent hundreds of years treating thousands of ME/CFS patients.
They have authored primers on clinical management, served on CDC medical education initiatives, and are actively involved in ME/CFS research. OMF is proud that Ronald G. Tompkins, MD, ScD, OMF Chief Medical Officer, is one of the U.S. ME/CFS Clinician Coalition members.

Help us improve the quality of life for all sufferers of ME/CFS and other chronic complex diseases, such as Post Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome and Fibromyalgia.
Donate your appreciated stock directly to OMFCA and you can receive an immediate income-tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer (even if you originally paid much less for them).
OMFCA sells your securities and uses the proceeds to support our mission. You also do not pay capital gains tax on the transfer when the stock is sold. Giving appreciated stock can be more beneficial than giving cash. The “cost” of your gift is often less than the deduction you gain by making it. In advance, thank you for making this generous gift.
