    This is a lengthy and fairly technical articles, from 2005 but is WELL WORTH the read. Also good for an unbelieving M.D. or one who THINKS all your tests are NORMAL. I bet he didn't order these (6) important tests.

    Ellie, thanks so much for posting this. I have bookmarked this site and all copied the page into a Microsoft document. It will come in handy when I finally find an infectious diseases doctor.

    Thank you for posting this. I just skimmed it briefly but it looks very interesting and I will look at it more carefully later, and am going to give a copy to my doctor.

    I went to see a new HMO doctor for a follow-up yesterday of some general tests (pap smear etc.). She wasn't there, another doctor saw me. She looked at the other doctor's notes and said, she wrote down that you're a little tired. I just looked at her and said, I have chronic fatigue syndrome. I end up in bed when I over do. She didn't say anything. My BP was a little high (140/80), she said she will prescribe diet and exercise, no pills. I just looked at her again, said I didn't want any pills anyways, and there was no point in telling her I can't exercise. Incredible ignorance and I am changing doctors. But I have a horrible HMO with very few to choose from.
