This is true, there is a condition called steatorrhea which is when you pass out oil in your stools. They are oily and pale. But remember this too is a liver condition, it is a sign of a weak or malfunctioning liver. It could be that it is not producing enough bile acids, or there is blockage along the ducts somewhere (rarer but will be accompanied by pain in the liver area). If its just pale stools and you are under stress which I guess for CFS can be anything, it still goes back to bile. It always comes back to bile and the liver at some point. Also if u c a mainstream doctor and u have CFS and pale stools and u tell him about it. He would much sooner throw you under a bus to be run over several times than to admit to an alternative medicine view on the liver so gudluk with that.
