    I have been doing alot of research these past couple of weeks since, my Doc. sent me to the Chiropractor Alternative Clinic, so I get accupuncture, massage (gentle), and adjustments. Anyways so I came across this website and there are approx. 20-25 conditions associated with FMS/CFS it is crazy but as I was looking through each condition It sounded like me to at T, I had just about every other associated condition in one way or another. I told my hubby I am screwed!! He just gave me a big smile and a hug and said we'll get through this together! Almost made me cry.

    Anyways will I get in trouble if I post the web address does anyone know? I think alot of you guys would find it very interesting.

    Well if someone wants too, let me know.

    Good Day.

    I'd be interested in reading. I don't see why you can't post the address - I see links for other sites posted here all the time.

    We do it all time, post informational websites. What's not okay is someone trying to sell products and posting a website where people can buy their products.

    Please do post the website! The more information the better -

    kjade and mbofov,

    Thanks, I think its pretty intersting it is www.AARDA.org (ALL CAPS) American Related Autoimmune Disease Association, there is also a canandian website that is all lower case letters I believe. But I myself have found to be very interested in it, I found it accidentally and now I can't stay off, I just couldn't believe about all the symptoms relating to all these other conditions.

    I hope you find it as interesting as I did.


    Sorry guys I put .com instead of .org, luckily someone found the error on another post.

    It is www.aarda.org, not .com. The dot com will get you the Alberta Recyclers something site! :)

    I am of course not happy seeing Lyme disease on that list... I know they mean CHRONIC Lyme, but do not see that clarified; and whether Chronic Lyme is autoimmune is highly controversial. I do know that extended abx help many people (including my son), and he would've died without it, as he was going down fairly rapidly (pulse dropped to 45-48 bpm, lost weight, only 16 yo).

    Endometriosis is also listed, but it's also been known for a long time to be linked to exposure to dioxin.

    &, I don't know anything about Coxsackie myocarditis, except I was told by a pt of Dr. Cheney's that it is what he had and why he ended up with a heart transplant, which is interesting...

    I think 'autoimmune' just means they haven't figured out yet what is happening with chronic conditions...

    I hear u about lyme disease n glad your Son is better.
    I didn't mean though that anyone with FMS/CFS has autoimmune, it's just that I had read that some conditions can coincide with others if u go into depth you'll know what I mean. I also have Rheumatoid Arthritis which I was diagnosed at age of 16, and from what I know Autoimmune just means that your bodys immune system no longer distinguishes that your body is okay n thinks it is the enemy so starts to attack oneselfs body.
    Anyways just my opinion that's all, but the site is very iformative the more depth you go into it.
