    Not an ME/CFS study so may have limited relevance.
    Nater has been involved in CFS research.

    This abstract seems weirdly written in a way that makes me wonder if they're trying to avoid being clear for a reason.

    I learned many years ago that medical personnel always interpret the word stress as psychological. If you were trained in strength of materials you would naturally understand that a purely physical interpretation of stress and strain is possible, and you can extend this to the concept of physical stressors other than mechanical force. You can find papers in which physiological stress is carefully delineated, but there are far too many in which the concept remains conveniently slippery.

    No physical markers, so it was just an effect of different questionnaire answering behaviour.
