Hello, As mentioned in another post (re: Dr. Wessely), I am new to this forum and have been "out of the loop" for a while until recently. My disease (CFIDS) was at least 90% in remission from 1997 until spring of 2013. I have discussed this in my blog, My Battle with CFIDS. My question is this: I was very surprised to learn that according to the CDC: " The opportunistic infections or increased risk for cancer observed in persons with immunodeficiency diseases or in immunosuppressed individuals is also not observed in CFS." ?! I find this very hard to believe, as I have struggled with chronic infections and this was, in fact, a big part of what led to my diagnosis of CFIDS in 1992! Dr. Mikovits has referred to CFS as "non-HIV AIDS" and this sounds pretty accurate based on my own experience and that of many other patients. I thought perhaps the CDC classified CFIDS as a separate disorder, but apparently not. Can anybody tell me why on earth the CDC does not acknowledge the immune dysfunction aspect of CFS??
