I've mentioned this in a couple of other earlier posts, but in case some of you missed this, American writer Amy Tan (Joy Luck Club, etc.) suffers from Chronic Lyme Disease. She has talked openly about his illness, and her web site includes an entire page about her own experiences with Lyme: http://www.amytan.net/LymeDisease.aspx I mention this, because many FM/CFS sufferers also have Lyme, and some of us have been misdiagnosed and do not know that we have Lyme. Many of the symptoms overlap. In any case, Lyme Disease is worth looking into as a possible underlying issue with FM/CFS--if one does have Lyme, it's very important to treat it, as it progresses in severity. Best wishes to all!
