Patients face long-term disability, a variable prognosis, and too often, skeptical or misinformed doctors. Physicians lack laboratory markers or definitive treatment. Nevertheless, the diagnosis can be made with confidence by applying established diagnostic criteria-and seleced laboratory studies to exclude other disorders while symptomatic medication can provide support until recovery begins.
