    Do you feel CFS & FM are 2 totally different illness or do you think researchers are going to decide they are really the same illness?

    I think they are two different illnesses that have some overlap. I myself have both but definitely think they are different.

    My rheumy explained fibro and CF as 'tandem illnesses'--difficult to seperate because you more often then not see one with the other. The conclusion that I drew after speaking with him, for people like myself with firmly diagnosed fibromyalgia, CF seems to drift in and out at times. I have had flares that were about pain and discomfort only. And a few others with crashing, gut wrenching fatigue. I would imagine CF was holding my hand for a little while during those flares.
