I've had both Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia for over 25 years now. I'm 49. I get swelling of my liver and spleen during my worst flu-like periods. Is this common? What do I need to do, when this happens? I go to the VA for all of my care. They aren't treating the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome at all and are only treating the muscle complaints with the Fibromyalgia.
