Thanks! You must have read my first letter on the AIDS forums: http://www.thebody.com/Forums/AIDS/SideEffects/Q160149.html I got really sick, really fast, and I suspect portal-of-entry (male to female sexual transmission) was a huge factor. I also suspect that whatever the pathogen is its because its gone undetected for so long that it is becoming more powerful. That's part of the problem with these sham paradigms. They are not science, and not all CFS patients are the same. After all, a syndrome is a syndrome, not a disease. www.cfsstraighttalk.blogspot.com Genetic predisposition also becomes a variable too.
