Diarrhea can occur as a symptom of ME/CFS. It forms part of a wider range of gastrointestinal disturbances in ME/CFS, and sometimes forms part of a diagnosis of IBS, a common comorbidity.

Prevalence[edit | edit source]

  • In a 2001 Belgian study, 40.8% of patients meeting the Fukuda criteria and 45.6% of patients meeting the Holmes criteria, in a cohort of 2073 CFS patients, reported diarrhea.[1]
  • In 1995, Katrina Berne, PhD, reported a prevalence of 50-90% for IBS symptoms (including diarrhea, nausea, gas, and abdominal pain).[2]
