Whatever it is, it seems to be the same dreaded disease. How else do you explain people from all over the world describing the exact same bizarre set of symptoms with little or no relief from painkillers? Makes me wonder if it is indeed viral or environmental. Also, clusters of people have come down with FM, notably, BYU campus and Lake Tahoe area as well as the Los Angeles epidemic. Epidemics and clusters don't seem genetic to me although I do believe there is a genetic predisposition. Amazing stuff. I am feeling so dead tired today and have 7 hours of work left. ugh.
