    Some people have both FM and CFS/ME, but not everyone. It can get confusing with them combined. They're not combined on the home page.

    I don't like being fussy.. but I have to say I liked it better when all were together. I have fms/cfs,me, and more,,,a mixed bag,,,haha..so I vote 'no'. I suffer with confusion regardless how the boards are..but I always manage somehow.
    Thankyou for asking.

    Keep it all together, it's all so spread out as it is.

    I hope they find a way to make it clear what is what. CFS/ME sufferers can get into serious problems if they follow advise for Fibro thinking it applies to them. It can cause a lot of harm. I don't know about the other way around but preventing that harm is caused by unclear information would be very usefull. Chit chat is something else but all the other boards would make a lot of sense to keep the information seperate.

    It's a lot easier for me personally that they are separated. When they are bundled together I get quite confused.

    ME/CFS and FMS are entirely different.... and should not be treated in the same way!
    ME, is an possibly an organic brain disease, where- by the central nervous system is very seriously affected...
    cfs is an epidemic, and patients are completely destroyed emotionally, physically, financially etc..

    Although, I have ME/CFS diagnosed 1984, and a diagnosis of FMS 2012.

    I think they are better separated. Advice and even discussions can be confusing to follow.

    What about those with BOTH? I still believe separating is not the answer.....EVERYONE needs to state what they deal with, either fill out the signature area as I have and seem to be alone in that endeavor, OR state what conditions they deal with when starting a message..... Separating just makes all more complex.....and spread out more.

    Afterall, we talk about thyroid, adrenals, etc etc etc regardless of condition.....
