Overlap of diagnostic criteria for CFS1, GWI7 and major depressive disorder78. Diagnostic protocols for CFS, GWI and depression selected different sets of primary and ancillary symptoms. CFS requires fatigue, then confirmation with ≥4 of 8 ancillary criteria. Active depression and other psychiatric diseases are exclusionary diagnoses for CFS. GWI requires 3 of 7 categories of symptoms. Depression requires depressed affect and anhedonia, then sufficient supporting complaints.
