    Not sure if this is what you ment CDC says FM & CFS are a disease 11/14/05 08:23 PM

    Justsaw an article on the FFC web sight.

    It was under my patient has FM or CFS and I cant seem to get it under control.

    If you look at the second paragraph you will see were it says.It wasn't until recently that the CDC ( center for disease control ) even defined and identified them as real diseases.

    So its not all in our heads.( I knew that ) Its not a syndrome .Its a real disease.

    Also listed as a disease on Myelectronicmed.

    Every doctor I have seen have never called it a disease. Everyone called it a syndrome. I am seeing one of my doctors on Friday .I'm going to show her the article.

    Thought all might want to see it.

    Sorry, My brain is not present this morning, so I might be a bit dense-- so I find that in 'Search' under CDC? I'd like a hard copy of an article for my doc.
