International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    "INTRODUCTION

    Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), also known as systemic exertion intolerance disease (SEID), has received considerable attention but remains a complicated and controversial disease [1]. Much of this is due to the lack of objective findings. Nonetheless, patients with CFS/SEID have real symptoms and are not malingerers. The prevalence of this syndrome is unclear in part due to difficulties in proving the diagnosis."

    Is this any good?

    I went to 'subscription options', 'UpToDate Subscriptions for Patients and Caregivers', into 'search patient content', searched for 'cfs/seid' and chose the first of the 3 options.

    I got a slightly different but more-complete page which mentions SEID. It does have a rather equivocal piece on GET!
