I have read in many threads on PR that recovery from ME/CFS after three years of being ill is very rare. I was discussing this by PM with @alex3619 and it is a very interesting topic to me as I am approaching the three year mark in January. I was wondering if anyone has any articles or citations to back up this statement? I have no agenda and not saying it is or is not true- it is pure curiosity and knowledge of wanting to know where the belief came from or if it is one of those folklore type statements that gets passed around the internet? Am not sure if a specific doctor or researcher found this to be true in a study or how it originated? Thanks in advance for any info or citations!
