    hi all. a few times, i have run into stories about couples who both contracted CFS. does this mean its contagious? in one story, the woman caught it many years after the is it contagious even after the acute phase??

    I always trip out when I hear about couples with CFS like you are mentioning because from what I understood CFS is not contagious. Most of us, I think, are not getting others sick.

    I had to think twice recently though because a friend of mine who has FM with CFS like symptoms kissed someone with CFS and said that her symptoms appeared after doing so. When she brought it up to the kisser, the kisser became very defensive and angry saying that it was not contagious and it ended their friendship.
