Chronic fatigue syndrome/Myalgic encephalomyelitis

The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) [1] guideline for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ Myalgic Encephalomyelitis CFS/ME in England emphasizes the importance of confident diagnosis and early treatment in primary care of people with CFS/ME. GPs report lack of knowledge and confidence in diagnosing and managing CFS/ME. Patients of BME origin present with vague physical symptoms, somatisation was common, and they may also be influenced by cultural beliefs such as black magic spells.

Síndrome de fatiga crónica/Encefalomielitis miálgica

Las guías de práctica clínica para el síndrome de fatiga crónica/encefalomielitis miálgica hechas por el National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, enfatizan la importancia de un diagnóstico adecuado, así como una terapéutica precoz referida a la atención primaria de las personas que padecen este trastorno. Los pacientes pertenecientes a minorías étnicas y de raza negra presentan síntomas inespecíficos con somatización frecuente, e influenciados, además, por ciertas creencias culturales como son los hechizos de magia negra.
