Myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) are serious, debilitating conditions that affect millions of people in the United States and around the world. ME/CFS can cause significant impairment and disability. Despite substantial efforts by researchers to better understand ME/CFS, there is no known cause or effective treatment. Diagnosing the disease remains a challenge, and patients often struggle with their illness for years before an identification is made. Some health care providers have been skeptical about the serious physiological - rather than psychological - nature of the illness. Once diagnosed, patients often complain of receiving hostility from their health care provider as well as being subjected to treatment strategies that exacerbate their symptoms. Beyond Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome proposes new diagnostic clinical criteria for ME/CFS and a new term for the illness - systemic exertion intolerance disease(SEID). According to this report, the term myalgic encephalomyelitis does not accurately describe this illness, and the term chronic fatigue syndrome can result in trivialization and stigmatization for patients afflicted with this illness. Beyond Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome stresses that SEID is a medical - not a psychiatric or psychological - illness. This report lists the major symptoms of SEID and recommends a diagnostic process.One of the report's most important conclusions is that a thorough history, physical examination, and targeted work-up are necessary and often sufficient for diagnosis. The new criteria will allow a large percentage of undiagnosed patients to receive an accurate diagnosis and appropriate care. Beyond Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome will be a valuable resource to promote the prompt diagnosis of patients with this complex, multisystem, and often devastating disorder; enhance public understanding; and provide a firm foundation for future improvements in diagnosis and treatment.

An important medical milestone for anyone connected with ME/CFS! Myalgic Encephalomyelitis / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Clinical Working Case Definition, Diagnostic and Treatment Protocols includes a clinical definition (clinical diagnostic criteria) for myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). The clinical case definition was developed by an expert medical consensus panel of treating physicians, teaching faculty and world leaders in the research of ME/CFS. An expert subcommittee of Health Canada established the Terms of Reference for the consensus panel. The definition more adequately reflects the complexity of symptoms of a given patient’s pathogenesis and should establish ME/CFS as a distinct medical entity and help distinguish it from overlapping medical conditions in the absence of a definitive laboratory test. “The clinical definition will enable clinicians to make an early diagnosis which may assist in lessening the impact of ME/CFS in some patients,” said Dr. Bruce M. Carruthers, lead author of the definition. “It will reduce the expensive problem of patients being sent to many specialists before being diagnosed and will allow patients to receive appropriate treatments in a timely fashion.” The panel's clinical case definition determines that more of the prominent symptoms are compulsory and symptoms that share a common region of pathogenesis are grouped together for clarity. In addition to severe prolonged fatigue, the definition includes the hallmark symptoms of post-exertional malaise and/or fatigue, sleep dysfunction, pain, two or more of the given neurological/cognitive manifestations, and at least one of the given symptoms from two of the categories of autonomic, neuroendocrine, and immune manifestations. Diagnostic exclusions and common co-morbid entities are also given. The special issue of the Journal of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome also includes a discussion of prominent symptoms, clinical practice diagnostic and treatment guidelines based on the best available research evidence, and an overview of available research on ME/CFS. The expert panel of 11 physicians—who have diagnosed and/or treated more than 20,000 ME/CFS patients between them—has developed a clinical case definition that provides a flexible conceptual framework based on the characteristic patterns of symptom clusters, which reflect specific areas of pathogenesis. The expert subcommittee of Health Canada selected the expert consensus panel. Authors include: Dr. Bruce M. Carruthers, lead author of the consensus document; co-author of the draft of the original version of the ME/CFS clinical definition, diagnostic and treatment protocols document; internal medicine, Galiano, British Columbia.

A few notes on this NEW revised and expanded edition which includes Dr. Hyde's chapter from the new Puri & Treasaden textbook:"Thirty years ago when a patient presented to a hospital clinic with unexplained fatigue, any medical school physician would have told the students to search for an occult malignancy, cardiac or other organ disease or chronic infection. The concept that there is an entity called chronic fatigue syndrome has totally altered that essential medical guideline. Patients are now being diagnosed with CFS as though it were a disease. It is not. It is a patchwork of symptoms that could mean anything. The original concepts of searching for occult disease are relevant to patients today with CFS, ME and other fatiguing illnesses. Furthermore, because you do not find pathology does not mean there is none."- Byron Hyde

What this book IS NOT: This is not a book about how to 'cure' M.E.This is not a volume of factual medical information on the conditionThis is not a magical success story from chronic illness to perfect healthWhat this book IS:This is the honest account of a young woman who has suffered with M.E. / C.F.S. for almost half her life. This is what it's really like to live with a long term illness that casts a shadow over every minute of your day.Novelist K.C. Finn turns her hand to non-fiction in this account of her life as an M.E. sufferer, covering thirty topics from diagnosis and medication to sleep, relationships, pain and depression. It offers a unique and extremely personal insight into the struggles and experiences she has encountered in the last twelve years. This book is an opportunity for non-sufferers to experience exactly how it feels to live with this crippling condition and to show fellow M.E. patients that they are not alone. “This book opens the door to my thoughts and feelings. It's not always pretty and it's not always pleasant, but it is honest, and it comes from a place of hope.” – K.C. Finn

How thorough is your understanding of ME/CFS? Adolescence and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Journeys with the Dragon examines the firsthand experiences of four young women stricken with this stigmatized chronic illness and offers advice and support for the victims, as well as for their family and friends. The book focuses on the ways they cope with a stigmatizing chronic illness during adolescence and the impact it has on their lives. It offers a personal “guide to survival” that will appeal to adolescent patients and parents, and it provides a window into the psychosocial implications of illness that is well-suited to professionals. Providing a description of symptoms that vary in intensity every day, such as fatigue, migraine headaches, muscle pain and/or weakness, cognitive dysfunction, and more, this valuable book also gives suggestions on how to cope with this disease as it looks at these patients’experiences from a psychological perspective. You will find reassurance, support, and an increase in knowledge as you become familiar with ME/CFS, and you will learn how real people are living with and managing this illness with strength and courage. Comprehensive and compelling, Adolescence and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome will appeal both to experts and novices. A chronology of the participants’experiences in their own words is followed by scientific discussion of an inductively derived theory that applies to that patient. Some of the areas that Adolescence and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome focuses on are: the role of stigma for patients and their families family interaction chronic illness management peer concerns development of the self interaction with broader institutions such as medical, educational, and insurance/government disability programs Adolescence and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome also addresses issues and topics that need to be explored in the future in order to help individuals and families lead easier and more independent lives.
