    Abstract

    Chronically ill patients with neurodegenerative and neurobehavioural and
    psychiatric diseases commonly have systemic and central nervous system
    bacterial and viral infections. In addition, other chronic illnesses
    where neurological manifestations are routinely found, such as fatiguing
    and autoimmune diseases, Lyme disease and Gulf War illnesses, also show
    systemic bacterial and viral infections that could be important in
    disease inception, progression or increasing the types/severities of
    signs and symptoms.

    Evidence of Mycoplasma species, Chlamydia pneumoniae, Borrelia
    burgdorferi, human herpesvirus-1, -6 and -7 and other bacterial and
    viral infections revealed high infection rates in the above illnesses
    that were not found in controls. Although the specific roles of chronic
    infections in various diseases and their pathogeneses have not been
    carefully determined, the data suggest that chronic bacterial and/or
    viral infections are common features of progressive chronic diseases.

    I am collecting links that detail vitamins, herbs, drugs and other therapies for chronic fatigue syndrome / myalgic encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) and fibromyalgia. See here:

    If anyone knows of any good links to chronic fatigue syndrome treatments, please let me know.
