    Is there a comprehensive list/database of conditions similar to ME/CFS?

    In addition, is there a comprehensive list of conditions to test for when diagnosing ME/CFS?

    Thanks!

    Not really. There are thousands of uncommon conditions. By and large it is much more useful to assess clinically before doing tests to see what other possibilities need considering. The basic list of tests that are worth doing in all cases are pretty much covered by MEA advice and by NICE, although I notice that ANA is not in the NICE list.
