Why we chose this test
This is a list of 72 ME symptoms taken from Carruthers et al.
Your selections come together into a single score which estimates your condition. Later on, when we have obtained more funding, we are hoping to divide the results into symptoms clusters to enable us to perhaps identify whether certain treatments work better on certain symptoms clusters.
Examples of questions in test
