Back to Nunez, the CBT was group therapy.
Overall strategy of study:
good way to fix my comments; thanks
Now we can tell them to GET lost! Hahaha
Through the Looking Glass, darkly
This is one of those studies that gives me the feeling that ME/CFS patients have slipped through some scientific looking-glass, like Alice. First they conclude that GET, instead of improving outcomes, makes physical functioning and pain worse. Then they say "The possible benefits of GET as part of multidisciplinary treatment for CFS should be assessed on an individual patient basis." !!! Why don't they say "Based on our findings that GET makes patients worse, we don't recommend it."?
Plus, there's the question of any study of ME/CFS which lists among its exclusion criteria "Patients with physical diseases that could cause fatigue." Ahem?
And by the way, what the heck is "sensorial focalization," anyway? I Googled it, and all I found other than this study was one case study of a women with sexual dysfunction due to sex aversion caused by childhood sex abuse (and I didn't understand what it meant there, either).
Yes, I don't have a clue either.
It is a pity they didn't have a waiting list control group or something like that as it is an odd control group.
At least with Table 2, the first p-value column tells one how the intervention group did compared to how it was before it started.
