    My Mom has always told me that when she was pregnant with me (I think around 3rd month) she got stung by a bee for the first time. She thinks this could've damaged my immune system and caused me to develop allergies which I still have to this day. I've never been stung by a bee, so I don't know what my reaction to it would be, however I know my father was allergic to bee stings so I avoid them like the plague. Any thoughts on this?

    Just curious,

    That's interesting that you think a bee sting started your CFS. That sounds very likely. I personally think mine was started by an MMR vaccine and Mono.

    I would guess there's probably an allergy test out there for it, I just never thought about asking my Dr. It is amazing I haven't gotten stung yet after all these years. Probably because if I see one within 5 feet of me I'm off running! I've heard about the fatal reactions some people can have to them. Guess I'm just not as worried about it as I should be??
