\note{Making this kind of distinction is not usually productive.
Fatigue is truly a biopsychosocial symptom, requiring simultaneous
evaluation of all three of those spheres of life.

If a long and expensive and invasive work-up to ``rule out'' physical
causes of fatigue produces nothing, and the patient is told ``it must be
psychological,'' it leaves a very bad taste \dots  Better to acknowledge
all the potential diagnoses ``up front'' \ldots

Kirk's ``dropouts'' were significantly more likely to be depressed, and
significantly less likely to be married or employed.  This probably led
to a systematic exclusion from these final numbers of those with fatigue
on a ``psychosocial'' basis.}
