Presumably also to reassure you that your case was -- in his eyes -- unambiguous, and potentially treatable.Diagnosed with CCI and AAI by dr Gilete in person. He said I was a very clear case.
He mentioned that he sometimes got people with ME who he did not have anything structurally wrong that he could find, and while I have no reason to doubt him, it's not the same as hearing from someone who has been in and gotten told they don't have it. I also don't know why he chose to tell me this, but from context my guess is that it was to emphasise that structural issues is not a universal root cause for ME.
It's a comment which has also created mixed feelings for me (his).
