Thoughts on the new Diagnostic Criteria for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, by a long-time advocate

  [ 8 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • July 27, 2011


HealthCentral’s ME/CFS & FM patient expert Karen Lee Richards was an enthusiastic member of the Campaign for a Fair Name that ProHealth founder Rich Carson initiated almost exactly 5 years ago to replace the demeaning name ‘chronic fatigue syndrome.”

And now “I could not be happier,” Karen says, to see the paper “Myalgic Encephalomyelitis: International Consensus Criteria,” which was unveiled to a surprised world in pre-print form last week (http://niceguidelines.files.wordpress.com/2011/07/myalgic-encephalomyelitis-international-consensus-criteria.pdf), by the Journal of Internal Medicine.

“Not only does it clearly state that 'myalgic encephalomyelitis' is a “more appropriate and correct” name than 'chronic fatigue syndrome' for this illness,” writes Karen, “but it presents a reasonable, well-researched set of criteria by which ME can be accurately identified and diagnosed.”…. “Agreement on the criteria used in research should give us much more consistent results than we’ve seen in the past.”

Read Karen’s succinct summary/commentary on the new diagnostic criteria in her July 27 blog – “New Criteria for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Unveiled.” And get ready for an interesting ride!
