Dear All, I'm still thinking MYCOPLASMA plays an important role in most of us with FM. Doctor Engel of NIH involved with the GWI study using DoxyCycline..... In 2000 Dr. Engel of NIH said the following.... "In civilians, mycoplasmas are the probable cause of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia." Excerpt from another article below... Dr Charles Engel, who is with the US National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland, stated the following at an NIH meeting on February 7, 2000: "I am now of the view that the probable cause of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia is the mycoplasma..." I have all the official documents to prove that mycoplasma is the disease agent in chronic fatigue syndrome/fibromyalgia as well as in AIDS, multiple sclerosis and many other illnesses. Of these, 80% are US or Canadian official government documents, and 20% are articles from peer-reviewed journals such as the Journal of the American Medical Association, New England Journal of Medicine and the Canadian Medical Association Journal. The journal articles and government documents complement each other.
