The association between borderline personality disorder, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome: systematic review is a study that looked at six other studies to see if Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) exists in Fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). No personality disorders or personality traits are listed as predisposing factors in the International Consensus Primer.[1]

BPD in patients with fibromyalgia[edit | edit source]

"At present, there does not appear to be firm and consistent evidence to support the hypothesis that the prevalence of BPD would be higher in individuals with fibromyalgia compared with the general population."[2]

BPD in patients with CFS[edit | edit source]

"There does not appear to be firm and consistent evidence to support the hypothesis that the prevalence of BPD is higher in individuals with CFS than in the general population."[2]

chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) - A controversial term, invented by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, that generally refers to a collection of symptoms as “fatigue”. There have been multiple attempts to come up with a set of diagnostic criteria to define this term, but few of those diagnostic criteria are currently in use. Previous attempts to define this term include the Fukuda criteria and the Oxford criteria. Some view the term as a useful diagnostic category for people with long-term fatigue of unexplained origin. Others view the term as a derogatory term borne out of animus towards patients. Some view the term as a synonym of myalgic encephalomyelitis, while others view myalgic encephalomyelitis as a distinct disease.
