    Juvenile CFS cast as fatigue - little knowledge of comorbidities or the full range of symptoms , especially if severely affected ( remember EC thinks school is doable for an hour if severely affected) - this may highlight how preconceptions govern treatment.
    I can't access full article to see how the MG diagnosis was determined , but the presentation looks like a severely affected child and / or severe PEM.
    A lot of the symptoms, sadly, are not uncommon.

    Not uncommon, yet I still feel angry when I read of medical malpractice like this...
