After 12 1/2 years of CFS/FM and many doctors treating me for that, I went to a neurologist, who said I had idiopathic genetic degenerative periperal neuropathy, specifically, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (doctor's name,not dental). The symptoms are much the same. The neurologist said she was positive. Net research says it takes an average of 11 1/2 years to get a diagnosis for that disease. Neurologist, associated with Stanford, also said she know nothing about CFS. Anyone else get late diagnosis of CMT? What do you think? Can both exist together (CMT and CFS) or perhaps an original viral infection activates the gene?
