This doesn't particularly excite me but if any one had it to hand, feel free to paste in the bit where myalgic is mentioned. Myalgic isn't that common a term and tends to be used with regard to Myalgic Encephalomyelitis or Fibromyalgia, I find.

BACKGROUND: Factitious disorder (FD) is the deliberate production or simulation of symptoms in order to adopt the sick role.
OBJECTIVE: The authors look at FD in the neurology setting.
METHOD: The authors examined documented, published cases.
RESULTS: FD cases in neurology are strikingly different from those in other specialties in terms of their demographics. Whereas the paradigm of FD in medicine as a whole is of the socially stable female healthcare worker, neurology continues to report largely the classic itinerant "Munchausen's" type.
DISCUSSION: The authors explore two possible explanations for this: either that female healthcare workers with FD do not present neurologically, or that, if they do, they are diagnosed with conversion disorder.
