This is really exciting. I am particularly intrigued by the distinction between typical and atypical patients, as I definitely fall into the latter category. I wonder if atypical patients are distinct from one another or if they are relatively homogenous.
Hopefully we will find out soon!
I am definitely in the atypical category as well.
That part was a little confusing. Dr. Peterson appears to be using the atypical moniker differently than it's been used previously, e.g. in the ME ICC where an atypical patient is one that has PEM but not enough of the other required symptoms to qualify for diagnosis. Peterson's atypical patient seems to be those at the extreme severe end or those with gross detectable abnormalities.
