So I was reading a thread here the other day there was some discussion of the cause of CFS(cant remember which thread). Some people saying their onset was like that of a virus. So what would CFS caused by benzodiazepine use say about my chronic fatigue? CNS damage? Could I have had a dormant virus that proliferated during my sickness of benzo withdrawal? I dont think Ive read of anyone else here who's CFS came about from benzo use/withdrawal. But I do know when I was on the benzo withdrawal forums there were many that ended up with CFS.
