Chronic Fatigue?

Hi, I am new to this board. Thank you for having me. I am pleased to see that this disease is classified under "immunological" along with Fibromyalgia.

One thing that did strike me as odd. The listing under immunological as "Chronic Fatigue". I am assuming this is "Chronic Fatigue syndrome" If it is, then this terminology exemplifies the confusion and misinterpretation about this disease.

I would have thought a board such as this would be using the term M.E. At very least ME/CFS as suggested by the ICC-ME/CFS.

I noted some of the problems that people experience such as a misunderstanding about relapsing-remitting cycles in ME (similar to MS). such cyclic symptom severity is common in immunological disease.
