I will let Vivienne know that the flaws were not just a matter of patients misunderstading concepts etc. Re LC, Wessely noted in his podcast that anyone with neurological symptoms is not diagnosed with CFS. That means that I would not have been included in the trial and would not have been in the ‘ME’ group.
There is no way that anyone with ME could have completed GET successsfully, unless well on the way to recovery.
GET is diagnostic. If you improve with GET, you can’t have ME.
