    I think my 13 year old son has CFIDS. He has been sick for over one month now. We've checked everything, even spend 7 hours in the emergency room recently. Doctor's can find anything wrong. The fatigue has really impacted his school attendance and his hobbies. I find he goes to bed around 8:00pm (without being told). Also, has been suffering from palpitations (heart checked out normal). If anyone has any advice, please let me know. I don't know what else to do.

    I dunno...
    maybe this is to obvious but has anyone checked your son for Mono?
    My son had Mono/EPstein-Barr virus at 13 yrs which caused severe fatigue ect, lasted over 6 months. I doubt the ER would check for this, however you could get your primary Doc to order the bloodwork.

    Just a thought!
