My comment on this new HIV-fatigue paper (nb Julia Newton is an author) - and it's relevance to the claims that HIV fatigue has psychosocial causes - is here.
From the discussion section:
Is it significant that the mean FIS score of CFS patients was almost twice as high as that of the HIV patients?
Maybe not. Not everyone with HIV necessarily has high levels of fatigue.
