I read a report about it on MSNBC's site and what I got from it was that some people (mostly women of course) are affected more by stress, conflict and other stresses and get CFS. They made comment again on how many doctors feel it is an ailment mostly of women who are neurotic blah, blah, blah. It wall seems to go back to the old psco causes and that there seems to be a genetic link as to how people relate to stressors. I wouldn't call it very helpful or encouraging as far as treatment goes. When will this attitude change? I don't have CFS but they are now saying my daughter probably has it in addition to her FMS. She's TIRED all the time, but she is also working full time with inadequately treated pain in my opinion.
