This is my second try to post this mssg, computer acting up so will make this relatively short. Just read flurry of correspondence on this board from 2003 from some of you who've experienced CFS or FM following a bout with Fifths Disease, otherwise known as Parvo Virus B19. I was dx with this in 1992, and subsequently started having increasingly severe and frequent bouts of fatigue w/accompanying super brain fog, body aches from neck down, etc. Does anyone else out there see a possible correlation between Fifths and onset of their CFS/FM? I'm amazed that this was over 13 years ago, and my CFS symptoms are now getting worse, not better. For info, I'm 51, have three grown children, earned a graduate degree in the interim years after the Fifths and work full time at a demanding job. But the bouts of fatigue are causing me to take a lot of sick leave - 2-3 days in bed. Tremendous brain fog drives me crazy! Thanks for your time and feedback!
