    This is supposively the tentative results of the recent 1 year study on 493 gulf war veterans who have FM/CFIDS like disorders. Mycoplasma was targeted. Seems like
    Exercise did help. This hasn't been published anywhere just statements made in a paper for Government hearings.


    "In the paper tabled by Feussner it was stated that

    * The mycoplasma/doxycycline study that has run for 1 year involving 493 veterans showed that there was no improvement in any veterans and that mycoplasma infections could not be implicated in GWL/S.

    * Exercise Behavioural Therapy, EBT, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, CBT, did not improve physical function but exercise with or without CBT lead to a significant improvement insymptoms of fatigue and memory problems. No details of either of these studies have been made available."

    Dr. Nicolson's research. I would like more details and hope they will provide them. The coverup on mycoplasmas continues, but the cat is out of the bag and cannot be stuffed back in.

    Love, Mikie

    Statisticaly you would expect at least a few to improve wouldn't you?
