    the woman thought she had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. This was over a decade of time that she was sick on and off. They detailed what CFS is and brought in all kinds fo specialists, i.e. infectious disease doctors and then finally diagnosed her with Adult onset Still's disease, which they think is caused by a microbe and is considered a form of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. They diagnosed her by the results of a CT scan

    I'm really very confused because of all the talk about her having CFS and Epstein Barr syndrome and then finally diagnosing her with adult onset Still's disease. I'll have to look at Discovery Health's web site tomorrow. Interesting though that they think its caused by a microbe.

    I hope that someone else saw it and comments.
