    All I can see is a set of 20 rather odd multiple choice questions. For several of them I think there is more than one answer, and for others no answer.
    The 'correct' answers are not given.

    Bits of the article are fine. Other bits are rather odd and lacking evidence.

    At least it doesn't recommend CBT/GET, and says there is no proven treatment.

    From a nursing perspective it seems quite good - longer recovery from surgery, not looking ill doesn't mean not ill, may need help with personal care etc.

    Paints too rosy a picture, I think - suggests 50% get better enough to return to work.

    Looks like they're using the Oxford criteria. Not impressed. No mention of harm from exercise.
