[“The results indicate that ME is one of the most disabling conditions for which we have normative data,” Goudsmit comments.]

This study assessed the relationship between illness intrusiveness, symptoms, disability and depression in patients with myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME).

Participants were 16 patients with ME and eight patients with ME plus co-morbid disorders.

The patients with co-morbid disorders reported greater illness intrusiveness than the patients with ME alone, but there were no differences between the groups on the other variables.

Significant correlations were found between illness intrusiveness on the one hand, and fatigue, cognitive dysfunction, disability and depression, on the other.

We conclude that ME is a disabling illness, which has a major impact on various life domains.
