Hey, just a random question to throw out there since I searched it on here and nothing came up. I'm just curious about whether those of you with siblings have seen them struck down with ME as well as yourselves, or if you've heard of anything like that before. My brother has similar symptoms to me (his main ones are back pain and headaches), and his doctor has also thrown out the diagnosis of ME so it's something we've been asking the doctors, and they don't seem to have heard of any kind of familial or genetic link (but they don't seem to know anything about ME in the first place). I've found a couple of websites talking about studies done on first-degree relatives that suggest a genetic factor of the illness, and a higher likelihood of closest relatives being affected. Anyone know whether any concrete evidence has been found in that area or if anyone has personal experience with it?
