    The lib here and the home page have some really great research info to look at and print out. The home page also has a great doctors refural on the right in the beige section just click and go and then click on the Co-cure good doctors list. Many of the docs also have web links and info on FMS and CFS and other things we may have. I hope the doc is also doing all the other rule out tests to. Like lyme, chari malfromation picked up on a MRI if asked to check for by the doc and so sos amny more things. There are some men here to if he wants to talk or just check out the veast wealth of info and research located here. Good luck to you both and the top topic on her the paitents CFS/FMS guide is fantastic for short and to thre point info to give to docs and others,it is free and you can get 99 at one time and order more as you need.

    Kim and Gary we have both FMS and CFS

    There are some doctors who believe that MS is neurological damage caused by viruses – in particular herpes viruses – there are eight of them I believe. The doctor who diagnosed me with MS is an Infectious Disease Specialist and he believes in that school of thought. He treated me for HHV-6 and CMV with many different types of anti-virals, pain meds, and steroids all last year. None of it helped! By the end of the year I was in such a bad pain cycle I had to wear an opiate type pain patch and was bedridden. I DO NOT recommend that route. The medications screwed up my entire body – the worse being my digestive system. AND, when we are this sick we really need our digestive systems most of all – at least in my opinion. Nutrition and life changes have helped me most, but I am still searching for answers. In my humble opinion traditional medicine has little to offer. But I’m still searching for answers so you never know….

    I wish you and your husband the best. I can really feel for you – I have been battling this since 1995. Please read everything you can. Read, read, read! This message board is a great resource for information and support!

    love,
