Title: The construction of patient credibility among people with chronic fatigue in China
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a poorly understood medical condition whose diagnosis relies largely on patient-reported symptoms. Therefore, determining patients' credibility as reporters of symptoms is a task of utmost importance for the diagnosis process. This research examines the credibility work that patients with CFS symptoms perform in interaction with healthcare practitioners and others in daily life. The data-collection consists of qualitative in-depth interviews with people suffering from persistent fatigue and doctors who have experienced diagnosing people with CFS symptoms.
