Forskning.no is a website about research for a general audience. ME has been debated several times lately, including research, the PACE-trial, psyche vs soma etc. A while ago, a psychologist with ME wrote an excellent debate article about ME at forskning.no. But she used a pseudonym without clarifying this on beforehand. That resulted into a lot of noice and accusations as "fake psychologist" from the biopsychosocio-crowd. Forskning.no has now interviewed the psychologist. They have also talked to the national center of expertise on CFS/ME (they talk mainly about psyche vs soma as usual; anxiety too is very physical, patients were active before they got sick) and with prof. Kristian Sommerfelt, child neurologist from Haukeland university hospital with over 20 years experience with ME. The result is quite good. And I think it is great of Forskning.no to explore the different sides of the ME-debate and present it in an understandable way to a larger audience.

With regard to certain other diseases, we are also very often dependent on what the patient tells about the symptoms, in order to diagnose. For example, this applies to migraines and epilepsy. There are no specific tests you can do to diagnose migraine, for example. Here the doctor trusts what the patient tells about symptoms. Sommerfelt has often wondered why ME patients' symptoms and decreased function are not picked up on to the same extent.
