Perhaps Dr Klimas meant to say that there was not sufficient evidence to support the E in Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (rather than M).
As that is what the IOM report actually says:
“The committee…was concerned that the term “encephalomyelitis” is not well supported by the evidence...
Myalgic encephalomyelitis: My = muscle, Algic = pain, Encephalo = brain, Mye = spinal cord, Itis = inflammation.
So, insufficient evidence of brain/spinal cord inflammation.
But I can't speak for her, perhaps her interpretation is different from mine.
Who knows. They didn't include myalgia in the definition as they didn't think it was universal enough (and certainly a percentage don't seem to report it).
