Never Ask Us if We're Hungry -- The Answer's Always No
There are three of us here and for many years, none of us ever got hungry. When our brains would turn to mush, when our faces would go numb, and we would start the invisible vibration which is the signature dance of ME/CFS, we knew we needed to eat.

    She really is a "side show" now. There's a comic Ad in the UK for those needing new glasses when mistaking one thing for another with humerous results - "should have gone to Spec Savers".

    By the way, for such effects to be independent of symptoms, the healthy controls should be required to exercise to excess before participating in the tasks. (I recommend getting them to run a marathon first) ;)

    These studies tend to have selection/participation biases...

    lol, and true

    but it would be easier just to use patients with RA, MS, diabetic encepalopathy, heart failure, Lupus, and the like (to really compare, the controls would have to be pretty much untreated as well as stigmatized, maligned, or generally despised [and unfairly so] by at least half their contacts: medical, professional, and family)

    We have this in the US too. Trudy Chalder lets in the rabid raccoon thinking it's his cat! (Trudy is a 'he' right, despite the girly name?)

    She'd better head on down to jobseekers! The gravy train is about to dry up.

    Lets hope she does ! She and her kind responsible for entrenching mumbo jumbo in the UK with their wild beliefs - somatisation - "gods of the gaps" (ie don't really know or understand). Personally could not relate to anything in their "brave new world".
