    Hi! This is a bit of a long shot, but is anyone doing an EPQ on ME/CFS? My mum has Myalgic Encephalomyelitis and I'm really passionate about the subject. Is anyone else affected by this illness or are doing a similar thing? Thank you x

    I didn't know an EPQ for ME/CFS was a thing :lol: I was diagnosed with ME/CFS a few years ago. Brilliant to see a family member so passionate about it tbh, most sufferers tend to find their own family members very ignorant towards it, quite frankly, and even though they know nothing about it they still love to dish advice (read - lectures) about it anyway :rolleyes:

    I'm not sure about an EPQ but Foo.mp3 does a lot of research and writing about ME/CFS.

    Aw thank you, hope you're doing okay! Yeah, I was speaking to my Extended Project teacher and said I really wanted to do something ME related. She suggested PACE trial review or family impact but really just gathering ideas at this stage.

    Heya! Sounds like a great idea and I sort of wondered about doing something similar myself! I don't think I will though as I'd prefer to do something related to the course I'd like to study, but I'm more than happy for you to PM me if you need some questions answered (although I'm sure you don't because you have your mum ). I am 16, have been suffering with ME for a year and a half and am able to attend Sixth Form on a part-time basis.

    It's great that you're so interested and wanting to write a whole EPQ about it! Good luck

    I'm not too bad The PACE trial seems like an interesting one to go for, no shortage of info around, and I guess the general consensus is that the trial was ashambles so you pretty much have a conclusion already :lol: A thread was posted about it here actually http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=4270314

    PACE trial review or family impact
    The former would be very topical, if a little complex and perhaps a bit dry in terms of looking at the methodological issues. I'm afraid this old timer is unfamiliar with this EPQ bizzle but happy to help if I can, oh and btw, our forum society/thread would be a good place to post in too

    Brilliant- thank you for your help! I just really wanted to do something I knew a lot about, was passionate about and something a little different. My group now know what ME is so that's an improvement! Hehe :awesome:
