An international survey of experiences and attitudes towards Transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation for people with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Recruitment now open 14 January 2022 until 11 February 2022

We are pleased to share " An international survey of experiences and attitudes towards Transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation for people with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis /Chronic Fatigue Syndrome."

There is growing anecdotal evidence that Transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation (tVNS) is being used for symptom management by people with ME, but there has been very little formal research exploring the use and experiences of this approach.

The aim of this study is to explore the experiences of people with ME who have tried tVNS. The study is international and open to anyone with a diagnosis of ME who currently uses tVNS or has tried to use in the past.

Please note the survey is open only to those who currently use tVNS, or have tried it in the past. 

How can I take part?

If you currently use tVNS, or have tried it in the past, then the first step is to read the participant information sheet, which can be downloaded below.

The link to the survey can be found on the information sheet.
