Missed Diagnoses Myalgic Encephalomyelitis & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Second Edition

Hyde MD, Byron More by this author...£12.99

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
