SUSSEX researchers are looking for people aged 18 to 65 who have a firm diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME or Fibromyalgia to take part in research which seeks to understand the biological and physical mechanisms of chronic pain and fatigue. This will involve routine medical procedures, including brain scans, heart rate and blood pressure measurement, questionnaires and blood tests.

The research project is a collaboration between the Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust & Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS).

Colin Barton, chairman of the Sussex ME Society said: “We are very pleased to be assisting with the important research being carried out at the university into this potentially life ruining illness.”
