Onset dates of CFS in the Cheney Clinic

Attached below is data abstracted from my current clinic CFS patient population (N=126) that looks at onset date. This looks just like data from my Charlotte practice 15 years ago which showed the peak production year of 1987. It remains the same and suggests CFS is largely a new disorder erupting out of a low level baseline that existed prior to 1980.
