    Nice to see that Jonathan Kerr is still in the field.
    I worry about the focus on psychological stress.

    My bolding
    Who is it believed by? I thought claims in research papers had to be referenced?

    Well certainly reading unevidenced claims such as this raise my psychological stress, so perhaps this is a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    I have no doubt psychological stress can play a role, but THE role ?
    PEM inducing stresses would seem more likely, especially if in a state of rolling PEM.

    Or flare ups of symptoms in illness cause people to be stressed since that means they can no longer function at their usual base level.
