Meet Dr. David Bell, MD, FAAP, who has been a faithful champion of ME/CFS/FM patients for more than 20 years – and now sees medical research at a crossroads that may mean today’s children will grow to see this spectrum of illnesses “as infrequently as we now see persons with leprosy.”

To ask this dedicated physician questions about ME/CFS/FM symptoms, therapies, and research, go to the Chat Room on Friday, November 2, from 3 to 4 pm PDT (6-7 EDT). If you're not yet registered to chat you can do so now - it takes but a moment. Or you can log in as a guest about 10 minutes before the chat start at

Dr. Bell, a specialist in pediatric chronic disease and family therapy, became one of the first doctors to recognize ME/CFS as a legitimate medical condition in 1985 when the mysterious illness ripped through the rural area around Lyndonville, in upstate New York. Dr. Bell has remained dedicated to the observation and care of those ME/CFS patients - and many more - and has made the study of their plight his lifelong work.

New Research, New Hope

Earlier this year, Dr. Bell says he was contemplating a gentle transition to retirement. But then a host of new research propositions regarding fatigue at the cellular level came together - and reignited his zeal to help find effective treatments. “At first I thought, it’s too complicated, I’m too old for this,” Dr. Bell recalls. But as he studied the emerging science his excitement grew, and with it a conviction that he’ll concentrate on it for the next 10 years of his life.

A “Benchmark” Book

As a first step he wrote and published Cellular Hypoxia and Neuro-Immune Fatigue It is a small book – describing in simple language the mechanisms of what Dr. Bell calls the “neuro-immune fatigue spectrum” based on what we know now. “I place the date on the cover – 2007 – because in 2008 we will know so much more that this will be completely out of date,” he wrote in the introduction. “If I am guessing right the concepts may still stand, but the holes will be filled in. And maybe someday soon the medical profession will embrace neuro-immune fatigue as the harbinger of a new era of cellular medicine. ”

To Learn More about Dr. Bell’s Many Contributions to FM & ME/CFS Patients, see: n A recent profile, titled “Dr. David S. Bell, MD – Dedicated to the Plight of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Patients Since 1985.” n Dr. Bell’s website (, where the Lyndonville News, his newsletter for ME/CFS/FM patients and advocates, is archived along with a patient Q&A, and much more. n "Dr. David Bell on 'Intravenous Fluid as a Treatment for ME/CFS'" - proposing the benefits of research to investigate why administration of IV saline solution helps some ME/CFS patients to feel better. n “David S. Bell, MD, on Medications for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Chronic Pain Control” - an article on chronic pain management that illustrates Dr. Bell's emphasis on helping patients understand and cope with their changing symptoms on a day-to-day basis. n Free online access to Dr. Bell’s book, Faces of CFS - a beautifully written collection of 10 “case histories” gleaned from his thousands of patient encounters that illustrates his kind and caring observation of the disorder’s human face. The introductory chapter titled "Outbreak in Lyndonville" also provides the intriguing story of how Dr. Bell set up his practice as a young country doctor.
