Not posted before and I'm assuming, rightly or wrongly, that the majority of users are from the U.S. I live in Scotland, in a small town called Crieff and have had CFS for just over two years since diagnosis, probably more like three years since the first symptoms. The weird thing is, that this relatively small community has quite a few sufferers in its midsts and more cases come to light in the surrounding villages. Previously, I lived in a village that had no communication masts and was fine until I moved here about 12 months before the problems started. Now, that village has had a mast put up (near a school, of all places) and cases of CFS are starting to come to light, 'though not in abundance. I have read about 'cluster' effects and also read a tenuous link to energy lines, on which Crieff is aligned with, on one of those Earth Mystery sites - which was unexpected. Magnetism is a strange thing and external forces can have a strong effect on the body. Can a concentration of magnetism, radio waves, microwaves or similar have any bearing on CFS/ME? I know it's a bit 'hokum pokum', but I am so desperate now, that I am willing to look into things that may be out of the ordinary, or so obvious, that nobody can see them. Thanks for taking the time to listen to my rantings.
