Staci R. Stevens, MA in exercise physiology. Founder and Director of Workwell Foundation, Ripon, California, US.[1] She serves as Co-Vice President of the Board of Directors and Chair of the Membership Committee of the International Association for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.[2] She served a term on the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee from 2003 - 2006.[3] Stevens is one of the authors of the 2011 case definition, International Consensus Criteria.[4]

Stevens had (in her own words) a very well-controlled case of myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) for greater than 20 years, which motivates her high commitment to advancing understanding of the illness and helping other patients.[5]

ME/CFS - An acronym that combines myalgic encephalomyelitis with chronic fatigue syndrome. Sometimes they are combined because people have trouble distinguishing one from the other. Sometimes they are combined because people see them as synonyms of each other.

Myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) - A disease often marked by neurological symptoms, but fatigue is sometimes a symptom as well. Some diagnostic criteria distinguish it from chronic fatigue syndrome, while other diagnostic criteria consider it to be a synonym for chronic fatigue syndrome. A defining characteristic of ME is post-exertional malaise (PEM), or post-exertional neuroimmune exhaustion (PENE), which is a notable exacerbation of symptoms brought on by small exertions. PEM can last for days or weeks. Symptoms can include cognitive impairments, muscle pain (myalgia), trouble remaining upright (orthostatic intolerance), sleep abnormalities, and gastro-intestinal impairments, among others. An estimated 25% of those suffering from ME are housebound or bedbound. The World Health Organization (WHO) classifies ME as a neurological disease.

Chronic fatigue (CF) - Persistent and abnormal fatigue is a symptom, not an illness. It may be caused by depression, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome or many other illnesses. The term "chronic fatigue" should never be confused with the disease chronic fatigue syndrome.
