What's up everyone. As like all of you, I've been in and out of Drs with either a shrug of the shoulders or more confusion. So I've been diagnosed twice with cfs/me both by reputable doctors. The 1st was the chief of infectious disease at Winthrop university hospital and the second was from dr mazlin who's a cfs/me specialist. Anyway I just came back from a new doc (neuro immune) and I told him I was diagnosed twice with cfs/me. He immediately said that's bullshit. So I was waiting for the usual but what he said kinda makes sense. Just wanted to get your opinions. He was saying that cfs/me(cfs for now on) are just a grouping of symptoms with no known cause. It's a dead end diagnosis. Kinda like the docs throwing their hands up and saying I have no idea so cfs it is. His opinion is that like any physical symptoms the symptoms are real and caused by a real problem. Symptoms are a sign something is physically wrong not psychological but went on to say that he believes that people diagnosed with cfs have some deep underlying problems that most Drs won't check for like metabolic autoantibodies or some genetic/mitochondrial problem that hasn't been found. I always thought that this just might be the case that's why it seems there are a bunch of subsets and stuff. but I feel like that would have been researched or something (sense it's cfs I guess it was probably never researched). Any opinions?
