    There's a new article by Dr. Garth Nicolson on our Home Page. While it deals with autoimmune diseases like RA, ALS, and MS, it is also applicable to CFS and most likely, FMS. The jury is still out on whether our illnesses are true autoimmune diseases, but they are almost certainly related and, I believe from my research, that FMS and CFS can be precursors to Lupus, MS, and a whole host of other autoimmune illnesses because of infectious agents.

    Researchers are looking more and more to stealth infections as possible triggers or causes of our illnesses. I still believe there is a genetic predisposition, but even so, I believe infections are a major contributor.

    It's well worth a read.

    Love, Mikie
