    Word about CFS seems to be spreading. Let us hope that more scientists get attracted to studying the syndrome.

    Looks interesting.

    Though not sure about this:

    "characterized by non-specific symptoms,... post exertion malaise"

    Non-specific? In my experience PEM is pretty specific. The more I do the sicker I get. Broadly speaking the basic symptom profile remains unchanged, the PEM just amplifies it (or the amplification is PEM). That phenomenon is quite distinct from my perspective.

    Surely in a sense all symptoms are nonspecific. If I go to the doctor with difficulty swallowing, they don't immediately diagnose cancer of the oesophagus. It's the pattern of symptoms that is more useful.
