Dedra S. Buchwald, MD is a primary care physician, professor of the College of Medicine at Washington State University, and the director of the Institute for Research and Education to Advance Community Health. She is currently studying chronic disease in American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander communities.[1][2]

Buchwald was president of the American Association of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, now called the International Association for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis from 1998 to 2001[3] and the chairperson for that organization’s January 2001, Fifth International Conference in Bloomington, Minnesota, US.

Dr. Buchwald's experience with ME/CFS goes back to the 1980's, where in 1988, Dr. Buchwald established the Chronic Fatigue Clinic at the Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, Waashington. In 1995, Dr Buchwald headed the Seattle Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Cooperative Research Center, a center partially funded by a National Institutes of Health grant.[4][5]

chronic disease - a disease or condition that usually lasts for 3 months or longer and may get worse over time

chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) - A fatigue-based illness. The term CFS was invented invented by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control as an replacement for myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME). Some view CFS as a neurological disease, others use the term for any unexplained long-term fatigue. Sometimes used as a the term as a synonym of myalgic encephalomyelitis, despite the different diagnostic criteria.

chronic fatigue (CF) - Persistent and abnormal fatigue is a symptom, not an illness. It may be caused by depression, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome or many other illnesses. The term "chronic fatigue" should never be confused with the disease chronic fatigue syndrome.

myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) - A disease often marked by neurological symptoms, but fatigue is sometimes a symptom as well. Some diagnostic criteria distinguish it from chronic fatigue syndrome, while other diagnostic criteria consider it to be a synonym for chronic fatigue syndrome. A defining characteristic of ME is post-exertional malaise (PEM), or post-exertional neuroimmune exhaustion (PENE), which is a notable exacerbation of symptoms brought on by small exertions. PEM can last for days or weeks. Symptoms can include cognitive impairments, muscle pain (myalgia), trouble remaining upright (orthostatic intolerance), sleep abnormalities, and gastro-intestinal impairments, among others. An estimated 25% of those suffering from ME are housebound or bedbound. The World Health Organization (WHO) classifies ME as a neurological disease.

somatic symptom disorder - A psychiatric term to describe an alleged condition whereby a person's thoughts somehow cause physical symptoms. The actual existence of such a condition is highly controversial, due to a lack of scientific evidence. It is related to other psychiatric terms, such as "psychosomatic", "neurasthenia", and "hysteria". Older terms include "somatization", "somatoform disorder", and "conversion disorder". Such terms refer to a scientifically-unsupported theory that claims that a wide range of physical symptoms can be created by the human mind, a theory which has been criticized as "mind over matter" parapsychology, a pseudoscience. Although "Somatic Symptom Disorder" is the term used by DSM-5, the term "Bodily Distress Disorder" has been proposed for ICD-11. (Learn more:
