http://www.dailyherald.com/business/story.asp?id=228955 Edward Shorter - PROFESSOR OF PSYCHIATRY - meaning - he teaches other doctors - says that fibromyalgia is 'nonsense.' "Fibromyalgia: Chronic pain. Shorter calls it “nonsense.” •Chronic fatigue syndrome: Referred to as CFS, it basically means you’re often very tired. Along with Fibromyalgia, it was a popular self-diagnosis in the ’90s, Shorter said. But no clear physical cause has been identified. “One of the reasons for the popularity for chronic pain and chronic fatigue nowadays is that they’re virtually impossible to disprove,” Shorter said. “You cannot disprove medically that somebody doesn’t have chronic fatigue, whereas with all the other kinds of psychosomatic symptoms that patients used to have, way back in time, like sudden paralysis, you could disprove them.” " Is it terribly mean of me to hope that HE will get it one day soon?
