    Afaic if a person had prior diagnosis of M.E, and given this type severity rarely happens over night, they shouldn't be given this diagnosis without really good explanations of why it wasn’t explained by a very severe M.E. diagnosis. I don’t know how commonly it’s being misused in our area, I just heard of it in relation to Esther Crawley.

    Can it really be true that "philosophers of science" are engaged in such a silly enterprise as "debating the specific identity of the condition"?

    EITED for typos

    In the paediatric Primer on ME, they say that PRU occurs very rarely, for example in a youngster who has undergone many courses of cancer treatment and does not want to go through any more.

    This is clearly not a forest, it's just a bunch of trees!

    There really is no comparison in any other profession to people who are this clueless and incapable of seeing what's slapping them in the face.

    I shall dub this Rube Goldberg's blunt mace of bluntness syndrome, a pervasive refusal to acknowledge that Occam's razor is indeed sharper than the bluntest roundest object in the known universe.

    systemic revues and meta analysis has come to mean bullshit in bullshit out I do not trust any of these so called research papers for the simple reason that I do not believe that there is any due diligence . so many papers are taken on trust simply because a broken publishing industry publishes anything it can profit from.

    I thought Pervasive Refusal Syndrome had been redefined to mean not doing what Esther Crawley says?
