CFS/ME caused by Epigenetic links

I find this stuff quite interesting. Could CFS/ME have epigenetic connection?

I mean if your ancestor suffered a major trauma and stress and it imprinted into their DNA it is quite possible that this then is passed on to future generations.

Therefore the current day person is "wired or programmed" to react a certain way to stress. When stress is chronic or prolonged it leads to CFS as the body doesn't have the information or has the wrong information to try to repair or fix it.

I think this is quite plausable....
