The Real ME: A Stock Photography Resource for the Media
We’ve all seen them in the news stories about ME/CFS: the guy in a suit at the office, yawning; the beautiful woman sitting at her desk with her immaculate make-up and elegantly coiffed hair, hand to her head and looking slightly pained.

    There are studies that show an objective, substantive and lasting effect for patients from CBT/GET. They are as subset of the studies showing no benefit or a worsening ... so the effect, if any, is to get worse.

    The other studies use potentially highly biased subjective measures. The six minute walk test shows a tiny effect that is entirely expected, and leaves patients in the highly disabled spectrum which is reclassified to normal in some cases.

    Some studies show temporary gain which is not sustained. In other areas of medicine this is often found to be due to bias. Not so here. Bias? No way! :eek:
