Mood and Anxiety Disorders in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome

CONCLUSIONS: Mood and anxiety disorders are more prevalent in individuals with FSSs, and particularly CFS, than in individuals without FSSs. However, most individuals with FSSs do not have mood or anxiety disorders.

(My emphasis added.)

So, for the hard of thinking (which includes numerous members of the medical profession), clearly if most individuals with FFSs do not have mood or anxiety disorders, then these mental issues cannot possibly be the cause of their ills, as so many have suggested.

Equally obvious is that those who do have problems with anxiety and/or depression, have developed it for entirely different reasons or, more likely, from having to deal with the unremitting pain, fatigue, loss of quality of life and so often, disbelief.
