    Today on ABC News Ch. 9 at 5:00 there is supposed to be some info on new breakthroughs for chronic fatigue. I only saw a short commercial for it but, maybe there is info that can help someone. I'm going to try to watch it.

    I watched it. It was about a Dr. Hurwitz at the University of Miami that believes the cause of CFS is a decrease in red blood cells. So, he has given patients Procrit, a drug usually used for cancer patients. Procrit raised the red cells through a hormone in the kidneys. He said it has worked for about half of the patients and they were able to return to work. The news report at the end said the signs of CFS are extreme tiredness, muscle pain, memory loss and insomnia.
