I was never keen on medical labels.
It looks like an attempt to lift the "status" and alter the perception
of this condition so it fits with conventional "organized" medicine philosophy better. Less controversy perhaps.

I haven't read the article yet, but I'll add more thing.
Nothing will help the millions of CFS/ME sufferers more than when
financial resources are placed towards exploring the suspected underlying
causes fully and holistically, so effective treatments can be implemented.
The continuation of the medical status quo, perpetuating symptoms' maintenance, is more or less guaranteed, when the only progress we have made is medical label switching from CFS/ME to SEID.
Enough SAID, lol!

Cheers and thanks for posting this.
