Get paid to fill out CFS Questionnaire

I want to urge everyone reading this (who has a fatigue illness, whether ME-CFS, Lyme or Fibromyalgia) to complete this survey. We need to establish that we are not depressed, emotionally wacked out individuals. This is a battle we will have to fight until we win!



Here is the description and links to the survey:
Unexplained Chronic Fatigue Questionnaire Study - Volunteers Needed

Individuals who have had severe, unexplained fatigue for at least six months and who have no serious abnormalities on medical tests are wanted for a study of chronic fatigue. Patients who qualify for the study will be asked to complete three questionnaires over a six month period. Participating in the study will not alter the treatment that your physician gives you. The purpose of the study is to evaluate whether patients treated by certain types of physicians improve faster than patients treated by other types of physicians. If you may be interested in participating in this study, please contact the study coordinator, Kathleen O'Connor at (801) 587-4741. For more information email kathleen.oconnor@hci.utah.edu or visit our website at https://hci-as2.hci.utah.edu/CFSurvey/app

We will send you $25 if you complete two questionnaires, one given to you at the time you enroll and a second given to you three months later. We will send another $25 to you for completing a questionnaire six months after you enroll. If you need to get results of your laboratory tests from physicians other than the physician who told you about this study, we will give you an additional $15 for giving us the results of all of these tests.
