    is anybody here not from Canada or USA? and if anyone has heard where best places(countries) to go for treatment? I have not made many posts so ill intro myself...Im Marley and Im here in Ga. The doctors i have seen have never mentioned cfs and i would bet they dont have 1 patient that does have that diagnosis...I am seriously thinking of moving, I have looked at Nevada, Amsterdam, Cali, Mexico, and Brazil....these seem a little more liberal if im saying that right...information from yall would be great....I got sick after a Uri back in 93, been sick ever since....doctors dont recognize fatigue and pain if blood work is normal....not being a very big guy doctors are very intimidating and make it blatantly clear that anti depressants is all they can do for me....I also have Ibs related anorexia so that makes them even less afraid to tell me its depression or they cant do anything....15 f ing years I just cant believe it but anyway thats how it goes sometimes, just letting everyone know me better....anyway am so excited bout this anyone from the places I mentioned or somewhere they really like?

    We usually have some UKers, but who would want to go there??? I happened up a CFS messageboard that was in a foreign language. At one link they gave me the choice of dutch or english so maybe it was the Netherlands. That makes me think that the foreign countries have their own boards in their language. So, we don't hear from them like we used to (CarlaNL for one). And that hampers any info coming through.

    Nevada sounds like it has the most going on right now with the XMRV. I am sure that is not any place else. The doctor from Belgium is with them now part of the year at least. I may be wrong about that.

    Sorry not much help.

    I heard Japan is taking CFS seriously.

    Japan, I will have to research that a little more....I got back an email from WTI and they say that they cant verify anybody else is certified to do the xmrv testing and that they are close to being able to send tests out....they are also two more updates in the WTI website q&a....thanks Marley

    Germany like many other European countries are really one of the last places you wanna be with CFS. Sure there are some professionals like Prof De Meirleir in Belgium but that's it.

    In my eyes the more leftist/socialistic a country, the more they handle CFS as a psychosomatic disease.
