    I've been diagnosed and have chronic pain and fatigue but I was also in a serious car accident 19 years ago that left me with chronic pain so I've always been confused about whether I have it and what it is. For example I do not really have IBS. Maybe a very mild version. But lately I'm getting sick like every few weeks. Which really stinks because I'm on a new job and now I have strept again!!! I'm really distraught about what to do about work tomorrow.

    I don't think it is one of the criteria for a diagnoses of FM or CFS, but it may have something to do with the cause and is just unknown at this time.

    I may be wrong because I am not a dr. but I have alot of problems getting sick frequently and my sister in law has fibro too and she is the same way constantly sick. What makes things worse is my hubby is currently a school bus driver and a janitor at a school so he brings home alot of germs and also my son brings home alot of germs from school. So I stay sick.
