You'll need to register (free) for Medscape to view the video.

ETA: hmmm, looks like all CFS-related articles are in their "infectious diseases" category. Below is a general CFS article from October 19, 2009.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome by Burke A Cunha, MD

While the cause of CFS is unknown, it is probably an infectious disease with immunological manifestations.

Never before were so many people so excited and relieved to be filed under 'infectious diseases'!

Well said Mark.

'''Happy Christmas darling - you have a deadly infectious retrovirus''.

''Best Christmas present I ever had love''.

''I knew you'd like it''.



A terrible terrible happy ending......

When I first got sick and was looking for a diagnosis, I went to an infectious disease who after taking a case history, exam and so forth, proclaimed that I was "free from any infectious disease". I wonder what she would think of that, and what she would say if I went back to her now?

Dr. Cunha states: "CFS has been excluded as a cause of EBV, although EBV infection may lead to a state of chronic fatigue...." Does this make sense to anyone? And there are a number of statements, particularly in the history of the disease section, that I would disagree with. Anyone else?
