A Live Chat with pioneering ME/CFS/FM doctor Charles W. Lapp, MD – was held Feb 1, in the ImmuneSupport.com Community Chat Room. A transcript of the chat will be included in future issues of ProHealth's ME/CFS and FM newsletters. And, owing to the overwhelming number of questions submitted, Dr. Lapp has volunteered to host another Q&A at a future date.

About Dr. Lapp and His Work

Dr. Charles Lapp is a world authority on Fibromyalgia and ME/CFS research & management who’s been treating patients hands-on for more than 20 years. Patients, medical professionals, and top organizations agree, he “really knows his stuff” – so participants could ask him anything they wanted to know about symptoms/problems, diagnosis, treatments, and the latest science.

Dr. Lapp is, for example:

n One of the pioneer physicians who first brought ME/CFS to national attention in the U.S. – as described in the intriguing profile, Charles W. Lapp, MD - Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Pioneer, Researcher, and Clinician.

n Director of the Hunter-Hopkins Center in Charlotte, NC – one of the few dedicated to Fibromyalgia and ME/CFS patient evaluation, management, and research. As explained at Dr. Lapp’s website (http://www.drlapp.net/aboutus.htm), he specializes in a (“Stepwise Approach”) to help patients deal with symptoms and perpetuating factors, using “traditional medical therapy complemented by proven wellness techniques” - and remains actively involved in (cutting edge research).

n Co-author, with Dr. Leonard Jason, of free online educational courses for healthcare professionals (which anyone may review) – CFS: Diagnosis and Management for Primary Care Physicians and CFS: A Primer for Allied Health Professionals. These are sponsored by the CDC and CFIDS Association of America.

n A leader - board member of the International Association for CFS/ME & FM and the American Fibromyalgia Syndrome Association; medical advisor to the CFIDS Association of America; member of the CFS Advisory Committee, consultants to the U.S. Secretary of Health & Human Services; consultant to the CDC; and a member of the Name Change Advisory Board and Fair Name Implementation Committee – dedicated to changing the name ‘chronic fatigue syndrome’ to ME/CFS.

A Few of Dr. Lapp's Publications

n “Guidelines for Persons with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (or Fibromyalgia) Who Are Anticipating Surgery”

n “The Treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia” - a very detailed explanation for patients of Dr. Lapp's evidence-based approach to treatment and rehabilitation.

n A Pediatric Case Definition for ME/CFS, written in collaboration with nine other leading ME/CFS specialists.
