    Years ago I was dx w/cfs; then Lupus; then Fibro. I could not tolerate Plaquenil, so I have continued to be disabled with many symptoms. I don't do well with drugs, but I'm not able to stay on top of my fatigue, pain, etc., so wondering if anyone else is dealing with these 3 together.

    Thanks for any feedback................carole

    carol..hope you don't mind the suggestion but have you been tested for viral infections? chronic viral infections can trigger CFS and autoimmune diseases

    Thanks for that suggestion, but I've been tested for everything for 30+years.

    My half-sister was dx with Fibro; after a few years, she was also dx with Lupus. I have Fibro/CFS and have been tested on several occasions for Lupus- thank God it has not reared it's ugly head with me.
