I'm afraid of a massive wild goose that wastes a lot of time, money and hope on nothing.
That's what happened when I first got sick- and removing the fillings was a complete waste of time- even thou the MELISA people told me point blank that I was allergic to them and they were very likely causing my CFS.
It was just a lot of BS.
Hi Recovery Soon,
I think that's the way it is with just about anything we may consider doing for ourselves. We just don't know whether it will pan out or not, and could be minus a significant amount of money for our efforts.
One thing I've kept in mind is that it's possible we may indeed be successfully addressing some "core" issues that played a part in our CFS, but because so many things have happened in our bodies over time (such as entrenched HPA dysfunction, or MCB, etc.), some of us just aren't able to "tip" ourselves back into some sort of homeostasis.
It appears that in Ian's case, he was able to make his way back to wellness. But if he had waited longer, say another year or two, I think there would probably have been less of a likelihood he would have been able to. This would fit in with the observations that the longer a person has CFS, the less are the odds of recovery.
My own personal belief, is that some of us, after addressing as many physical issues as we can, may have to find different methods of restoring some homeostasis that is not occurring naturally. I think this is where different modalities like acupuncture, neural therapy, etc. may play a role.
There's certainly no roadmap out there for us to follow. But the people I've noticed who have made the greatest improvements are the ones who diligently and methodically stayed the course in tracking down their own particular issues, and then addressed them the best they could.
Given your remarkable story about your sudden onset of CFS, I think you're on the right track with continuing to give this cavitation issue your attention (IMHO). It sounds like you've experienced a great deal of frustration with this issue over a long period of time, but perhaps it's possible you can find the right oral surgeon that can really take care of some things for you.
If you do find one, I would appreciate hearing about it. I have various pain syndromes in my mouth, and suspect they're from some underlying infections, and hope to begin doing my own research this coming year. If you're willing to travel, you may want to consider the following oral surgeon I'm considering contacting. Just calling his office might provide you some good information.

Terry Lee was the oral surgeon who did the cavitation surgery on Linda Smith, the woman with CFS in the book "Diagnosis Unknown". So he's had at least one success with someone who came to him with CFS, and he was able to do the surgery that was the key to her totally recovering her health.
Wishing you the best as you continue to research this very difficult and tedious topic.
