Abstract

The theoretical relevance and clinical usefulness of a neurobiologically based .,stress adaptation model" for medically .,unexplained" chronic fatigue and pain are discussed, based upon recent literature on this subject. It becomes increasingly clear that this model may facilitate adequate diagnostic delineation, defy dualistic etio-pathogenetic thinking, and allow a tailor-made treatment for these patients optimising their chances of recovery. How a personalised, biopsychosocially oriented care for patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) or fibromyalgia should be organised concretely, still remains an open question.
