I was interested to see this mention of acupuncture. Back in 1993, I found an acupuncturist who got me through a life-threatening opportunistic illness (pneumonia and tonsillitis). I had lost 20 lbs. in a month, had fevers spiking to 103, could not get up off the floor, and everything had turned gray -- I couldn't see colors at all. Yet when someone took me to an emergency room, and I explained to the doctor I had CFS, he laughed and sent me home. Two people living nearby got me to an acupuncturist who, as I lay on the table the first time, did something to my ear that immediately caused the swollen tonsil to shrink and the fever to break. I was astounded. It took all summer, but he got me back to where I had been before...'merely' very ill with CFS/ME. He worked on me regularly for a couple of years. He could get me almost completely symptom-free, but it could never be sustained.
After he stopped practicing, I tried every other acupuncturist in the area. None of them could do what he had done, and they were all dreadfully ignorant about what CFS actually is.
