    yes, the CDC mentions 80% and Jason has one or more studies, one of which found 90%. Just a sec....

    Pretty sure that's (raw number [percent]). And refers to before having enrolled in the study.

    I could be wrong, haven't looked for it, but I seem to remember Dr. Klimas reporting that about 84% of ME/CFS sufferers have probably not been diagnosed.
