    Dr Paul Cheney has been filmed giving a talk on CFS and heart malfunction. In the video, Dr Cheney explores the correlation between CFS patients and a malfunction with their heart’s left ventricular’s function. It seems that this malfunction causes the heart not to fill with as much blood, therefore the output is much decreased. This is called mild Diastolic Dysfunction - Grade 1. This condition cannot be picked up by a normal ECG. However, it is important to stress that Dr Cheney believes that this type of dysfunction is not a life-threatening disease.

    The video, although very interesting, is rather long. I recommend you let it download, walk away and make a cup of tea, and go back to it regularly for viewing.

    If you wish you can tell me a little about it, I love different countries and cultures. India is one place I always wanted to go to!

    only someone who is ill and has children, knows what an incredible job it is to take care of two children , beeing ill with cfids and single!!!!!!!
    same here on my side of the ocean. But i have my ex, which helps me a lot.
    are your kids ok?

    karinaxx,

    I'm a physiologist with a son with CFIDS, I listened to the first half tonight, but you were right to warn people that it was long. It didn't take too long to download, but I've been listening for quite a while and he just now took a break.

    He's very interesting, but you should warn folks again that it's a VERY long talk.

    After I listen to it all, I'll try to summarize it (if possible) and post back here.

    Thanks again,

    Deb

    I don't know how I do it with 2 kids! they have to miss out on quite a few outings, and have learned that boredom is part of life (will build character when they are grown-ups). I save my energy so I am able to go out 2-3 times/week for their sake. I am not bedbound like some, but have a pretty bad case. I can't work, that would be the end for all of us.

    Where in India do you live? Why did you move there? I could go on asking questions, but this will have to do!

    Thanks for replying,,,LOL!

    Okay, I finally finished watching and part way through decided to take notes. 17 pages later and wow! I thought it would never end.

    I'm still processing the information. Much of what he said made sense, but some needs to soak in before I try to figure it out.
