    I believe there is a fine line between self-diagnosing and doing research on what might ail you. What you can do is take your research to your doctor and get their opinion.

    The medical professionals admit to knowing so little about CFIDS and FMS! We are forced to do our own research and often self-diagnose! I have really lost a lot of faith in western medicine and doctors.
