    Dear Fairlady, When ever you lose a large amount of weight quickly, without trying you need to get yourself to the doctor and get yourself checked out.

    I too have FM & CFS, so I know how much it takes to get to the doctor. I am sorry you are having this experience. I do hope you will go get checked and let us know how things turn out.

    Hugs and love to you,

    Yes I too have had a lot of unintentional weight loss I also have fibro and CFS. Been to many doctors and had many tests. The problem is in my digestion. My nails are thin cracked ridges in them shows that I am not absorbing my nutrients. I have a big problem with digesting protein ...need digestive enzymes' after eating probably why I am losing my hair also... hair needs protein.MY weight is good but seems like I am losing muscle mass even though I eat large amounts of food. Also see undigestive food in toilet I have also had breath test which showed bacteria problem in stomach which can cause weight loss too go to an gastro Doctor. Hope this helps you let me know will get back to you
