    How about MMSF for Multiple Metabolic System Failure? I'm sick and tired of the word "fatigue". That only describes a good day. I would like a name that encompasses all the following: adrenal fatigue, GI disorder, liver congestion, glutathione deficiency, malnutrition, heart disease secondary to mitochondrial malfunction, dysfunctional hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis, central nervous system dysfunction, hormonal imbalances; these are all mine. Then when you go to the doctor and say "multiple system failure" maybe they will be a little more inclined to look for abnormalities beyond regular blood and urine tests which are (as any cfs sufferer already knows) usually all totally normal. How much thought went into "chronic fatigue", anyway? That's at one end of the spectrum and at the other we should have had "chronic incapacitation".
