    This study says there is an association between IBS and Chronic Fatigue after giardiasis infection, although I am unsure whether they mean CFS or just CF, which is why I have put this link in the Other Health News rather than Latest Research relating to CFS.

    I couldn't read the whole article, Glynis, but speaking from personal experience, I would say there's a causal link between giardia and chronic ill health. I was hospitalised about 5-6 years ago with it, and have not been the same, gastro intestinally speaking, ever since.

    Thanks for posting the article.

    I got mono two years after getting giardiasis, and got ME 2 years after that. When I got giardia, I took flagyl, and my acupuncturist friend said she had seen a link between taking flagyl and getting ME.
