    I am very interested in the recent article "In Some Patients With Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Left Ventricular Function May Be At The Heart Of The Matter" an would like to hear other people's input. I have suffered from CFS for 20 years now, but I have luckily been able to control most of the symptoms with florinef. In my case, I believe that a left ventricle function problem could be a possible explaination. All of my heart tests, i.e. 24 hr. harness, EKG, have all come out negative. If the problem is with the left ventricle, what kind of treatments exist. I've recently heard of EECP (Enhanced External Counterpulsation) for treating what seems to be simular heart conditions. Has anybody heard of research being done in this direction?
