Why are doctors skeptical and unhelpful, Parts 1 and 2

[These two articles are written by a journalist with ME/CFS. Part 2
covers more political issues like the CDC, exercise advice, the IoM
process, etc. Tom (@TomKindlon)]

Guest Post, pt. 2: Why Are Doctors Skeptical & Unhelpful about Chronic
Fatigue Syndrome?

By: Julie Rehmeyer | April 24, 2014

This is Part Two of a post on myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic
fatigue syndrome — or just ME/CFS — which is a disease that 1) knocks
people right out of the game and 2) doctors can help with (though not
as well as one would like). But most doctors haven't a clue, often
even viewing the illness as psychosomatic and untreatable.  Part One
was yesterday, and it left off puzzling about why doctors are so
unknowledgeable.
