    Just wondering what the latest news is on ICD 11 Coding for both ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia.

    The IASP's Antonia Barke has not responded to my several requests for clarifications.

    There have been no comments posted on the ICD-11 Proposal Mechanism by Fibro orgs or advocates in response to these most recent proposals for Fibromyalgia.



    There is no hybrid term "ME/CFS" is ICD-11. For the status of the three ICD-10 G93.3 legacy terms: Postviral fatigue syndrome, Benign myalgic encephalomyelitis and Chronic fatigue syndrome see:

    Post #202


    Post #204


    The most recent version of the Table included in these two posts is v3 in this PDF:


    Recently processed ICD-11 proposals v3

    See also this April 30, 2019 report on my Dx Revision Watch website:


    ICD-11: Recently processed proposals for Postviral fatigue syndrome, ME, CFS; Fatigue; and Bodily distress disorder


    I am retired now. I will make myself available for clarifications, if required, but not for general discussion of ICD-11.

    As there is a dedicated thread for ICD-11:

    Updates on status of ICD-11 and changes to other classification and terminology systems

    it would be best to post any comments, if you have them, under that thread.
