After dealing with CFS for almost 2 years, I finally broke down and made the trip to the Cleveland Clinic. I figured since they were at the forefront of this new XMRV study, they would be able shed some light and actually help me. To make a long story short I saw a Rheumatologist, and she sent me away with a sleep medication (I've already been on one for awhile and it obviously doesn't help relieve any of my symptoms). This to me is UNACCEPTABLE. The doctor didn't even mention XMRV or any type of infection, etc...which to me all along this illness feels like I have a "bug" I can't get rid of, not a sleeping problem. (as all of you suffering already know). This doctor was even listed on their website as one who treats Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, so needless to say I was very suprised as to what she did for me. It does not make sense to me. Does anyone else know of a particular doctor at the Cleveland Clinic that is more open to other treatment options? Or would atleast be up to date on the new XMRV research for CFS? One that I may actually get an appointment with? I feel like I went to a premier health facility and they're telling me to "sleep it off"...unbelievable.
