    Hello,

    I'm Bill and I am suffering from intermittent bouts of extreme fatigue and cognitive issues. Until last fall, I flew for a major airline. Then I stepped off a cliff and there doesn't seem to be any way to get back to the person I knew as 'me'. Perhaps I am in denial, as although 3 MDs and a neurologist all want to stick the CFS sticker on my forehead and send me home, I'm still looking for other reasons for my multi-symptom illness. Baring that, a doctor that is well versed in FM/CFS who can do something other something more than antidepressants, which I can't tolerate. I live in southeastern MI, but willing to travel to Detroit, Lansing, Jackson, Toledo, Fort Wayne, or?

    Would also consider traveling further to a reputable facility. Anyone with recommendations can reach me at searchinferu@yahoo.com Thanks for listening

    Bill - you might try acam.org - a website for integrative medicine doctors, the only ones I've found who know anything about CFS, and will do more than give you prescription ADs which I can't tolerate either. There's a search feature at the top of the home page of acam.org under "health resources" where you plug in your zip code or city.

    Also, I think you should investigate the possibility of lyme. There's a lot of info on this board about it, you can do a search. Most M.D.s don't know how to treat it. If you go to this link:
    http://forums.prohealth.com/forums/index.php?threads/i-beg-someone-to-help-me.263328/#post-1767622

    and scroll down to about the 10th post by someone called Nanie46, you'll see several links with info about lyme

    Best wishes,

    Mary

    Bill,

    Dr. Dantini is in Florida, I am considering going to see him in the next month or two, he has been treating CFS/FM for years with anti-virals.
