What's wrong with some "CFS" research

Sampling bias
Say you've got ME/CFS. You often have to decide whether to spend your tiny
allotment of energy on a shower or making yourself something to eat. One
day you hear about a study. If you become a subject, they'll require you to
exercise. If you exercise, you won't have enough energy for the shower OR
the food.
Do you participate?
Neither would I.
