Researchers Try to Help CFS Patients Despite Fact Patients Want to Kill Them

 

"It may seem odd at first glance that millions of people of all ages from different cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds could all develop the same psychosomatic symptoms." adds White.  "But to a psychosomatic researcher with a real incentive to find psychological diseases in people who don't seem to have any, it all makes sense."

They solved the problem by creating a whole new category of mental illness.  

"We call it 'Wandering Brain'" says Sharpe proudly.

Functional impairment in chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, MCS

 
CONCLUSION
Patients seen at the EHC demonstrated marked functional impairment, consistent with their reported difficulties working and caring for their homes and families during what should be their peak productive years. Early comprehensive assessment, medical management, and social and financial support might avoid the deterioration of function associated with prolonged illness. Education and information resources are required for health care professionals and the public, along with further etiologic and prognostic research.
