I had never heard of this befire, but it sounds like it would be a really useful tool. I would think for disability it would be helpful to have a specialist rate you on this scale. I have heard that it can be hard to find a specialist for CFS. Some people have gone to infectious disease docs, some go to internal medicine docs and others have gone to endochronologists, but I think the endo's just rule out any thyroid or endochrine issues. I was diagnosed by an internal medicine doc, but it wasn't a great experience and he never had me come in for any follow up, so I was left trying to sort things out for myself. I'm glad you found this scale, it might end up helping some people who are trying to get disability.
