I have begun to wonder if some patients get diagnosed with fibromyalgia because it's more "acceptable" than an ME/CFS diagnosis -- in the sense that doctors are more willing to treat the symptoms than they are ME/CFS patients. I pray I don't offend anyone. I have fibro. I want to better understand ME/CFS but I don't know what questions to ask. I want to read about what symptoms you deal with but I'm still finding my way around the forum. I read a lot about XMRV and until now have been too tired to do much "exploring" here. Been a bit shy, too. Hoping I'll fit in here. You are an amazing bunch of people.
