    "INTRODUCTION

    Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), also known as systemic exertion intolerance disease (SEID), has received considerable attention but remains a complicated and controversial disease [1]. Much of this is due to the lack of objective findings. Nonetheless, patients with CFS/SEID have real symptoms and are not malingerers. The prevalence of this syndrome is unclear in part due to difficulties in proving the diagnosis."

    Is this any good?

    I went to 'subscription options', 'UpToDate Subscriptions for Patients and Caregivers', into 'search patient content', searched for 'cfs/seid' and chose the first of the 3 options.

    I got a slightly different but more-complete page which mentions SEID. It does have a rather equivocal piece on GET!
