    i can never tell if the posts are about fm or cfs. not just about viral treatments but about most of the topics. just curious about the av treatment for fm. also how do you know what levels are abnormal for the virus's. there seems to be disagreement between doctors. thanks for any info.

    bloodwork shows virals - from what I have experienced, it pretty much always indicates CFS and some people also who have FM do get virals. Because they do not know the exact causes of FM, some seems to be virally caused too! My specialist would disagree but the evidence seems to be there.

    I do not have CFS, but have extreme FM. No virals in my bloodwork. The bloodwork needs to be done by someone specialized in the field - a hemeopathologist; a specialist for CFS. There are alot of overlapping of symptoms on this board for both conditions.

    Some have both conditions. alot of people with FM do have the severe fatigue that comes with CFS> I always thought of them as two separate illnesses until I came to this board!

    And some FM symptoms are ME related. That is why it is such a complex illness.
