    Two days ago channel 9 news covered CFS/Fibro and the impact it has on ones life. Has anyone seen major news coverage on this?
    The good news is that it is becoming more and more recognized. The bad news is at one time DR's were over diagnosing patients with this years ago. It has gotten recognition in the past however, when DR's could not figure out what was going on they called it Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I have talked to some friends that have medical back grounds and they too agree, that if it were not a diagnosis that DR's previously over used, then this would be higher up the food chain. The DR's who over used this diagnosis just wanted to attach a name and have the patients quit bothering them.
