Symptom assessment procedures that fail to provide information on either the severity of symptoms or the fluctuations in severity and activity levels over time may prevent health-care professionals from understanding the complexities of CFS. In the Journal of Clinical Psychology (volume 55, pages 411-424), Leonard Jason, PhD, and colleagues at DePaul University in Chicago present a pair of CFS case studies “to illustrate the advantages of using self-reporting rating scales in combination with a device used to measure the frequency and intensity of activity.

The implications of this assessment system, which captures the symptom dynamics and variability involved in CFS, are discussed in the article, “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Assessing Symptoms and Activity Level.”
