    Very thought provoking.

    I found it especially interesting that some people may have CFS but the virus would not show up. That could be almost 40% if I am remembering correctly. How will society interpret that.

    I think most likely a subset of CFS. Hopefully, these people will be able to at least have a marker to show that this is physical.

    I don't think I have CFS. I never had a virus and my symptoms were brought on by a broken arm. I feel that for me this DD is more neurological and most likely FM.

    Thanks for the article. Like you, many of us if not most, if you have the energy, are trying to find all the information we can. It can only help.
