Split thread From the latest Emerge Australia newsletter: I would satisfy the Canadian clinical criteria, but I doubt I would be seen as satisfying it based on my GP notes. My earlier GP retired. I have been with this practice over 15 years but I was diagnosed before that so wouldn't mention all my symptoms during consultations. However, now that I think about it more, perhaps if they did keep a record of when I first attended, I did give them a list of most of my symptoms. So if that was put into the system, perhaps I would be counted as a case. Anyway, I think this system may underestimate the prevalence of those satisfying the Canadian clinical criteria.
