    Welcome to to the board.

    I'm not sure why CFS/FM are lumped together. Some people think they are the same disease. Some people say if you get one, you'll probbly develop the other.

    The newsletter from the board seemed to indicate they might separate the two in the future.

    People have posted lists of abbreviations many times. I bumped some up for you on the FM/CFS board. If you still can't find what you want, try a search.

    Go to the upper left hand corner and type abbreviations in the search window.

    Good luck.

    Hi California

    I know how confusing all the short forms can be. I think the FF clinic is probably a Fibro and Fatique clinic that some people are going to.
