    "However, research findings about the precise role of physical deconditioning in CFS/FM are equivocal. Taken together, findings converge to suggest that the degree of physical deconditioning varies significantly among patients and thatin contrast with previous theoriesthis factor does not seem to play a specific pathophysiological role in the illness.27"

    I'm off to bed soon, so I'm posting this as a reminder for me to keep reading as much as for the interest of anyone else. I hadn't realised that deconditioning had been abandoned by the bio-psycho-socialists and want to read up on it.

    Hopefully someone else will find the paper of interest too.

    Well, unfortunately, deconditioning hasn't been abandoned by all bio-psycho-socialists. Van Houdenhouve has written things like people with CFS are more likely to be overactive. I think that is more true based on the statistics but it doesn't mean everyone is.

    The link above is a free full text in case anyone missed it.

    Reference 27 is in a Sage Publication. They have a free trial at the moment (they do it every year around this time). Go to www.sagepub.com (maybe only Europe one????) and sign up for the trial till Oct 15 and one can download lots of free papers (I've no financial interest). I download them as references to have without necessarily reading a lot of them.
