Name change committee report | Comments by Dr Charles Shepherd

 

CFS/chronic fatigue syndrome is an absolutely dreadful name for a serious and debilitating neurological illness. It is the equivalent of saying someone with dementia has a chronic forgetfulness syndrome. CFS needs to be placed in the medical dustbin of obsolete names as soon as possible.

But I'm not feeling very excited about what is being proposed – systemic exertion intolerance disease or acronym SEID
