    They would appear to have figured out that the more severely ill you are, the harder you are to treat, or to put it another way, if you actually have ME/CFS then their treatments are less effective. :banghead:

    And those with less severe symptoms are probably more likely to subjectively self report improvement even though none actually exists.
