Lack of stamina

From MEpedia, a crowd-sourced encyclopedia of ME and CFS science and history

Lack of stamina is an inability to maintain or sustain prolonged stressful effort or activity.[1] However, with a patient suffering from ME, the ability to maintain or sustain even minor effort or activity, be it physical or mental, isn't possible.[2] This lack of stamina is more easily quantified in severe and very severe ME.

The CDC only officially recognizes ME/CFS,[3] so ME patients are sometimes categorized as "severely affected ME/CFS patients"[2] by them. However, ME/CFS patients can also be severely affected.[2]
