From 2004 until 2012, the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee
has recommended chronic fatigue syndrome have the same clinical
diagnostic code in the United States as it has in the World
Health Organization diagnostic code manual (ICD-10).
When no medical professional nor a professional organization took any
action to make this happen, we formed a coalition of patient
organizations that made an application to the National Center for Health
Statistics in 2011.
