In brief: CFS is a diagnosis

Made if all other tests for illnesses causing weakness or fatigue are negative.
Your dr is ordering these stimulation tests to check for diseases related to possible dysfunction in the hypothalamus, pituitary, thyroid or adrenal glands.http://www.webmd.com/chronic-fatigue-syndrome/ http://nyp.Org/komansky/patient_care/medical_services/endocrinology/information_for_patients_and_families.Html.
