Does ME/CFS crop up in families? Take the poll and lets find out! If at least one member of the following groups has something that appears to be ME/CFS (mysterious fatiguing and debilitating disorder doctors cannot figure out) please check them.
Could it have been the old Poll that you took? I think I put you can vote for more than one selection - I'll check.
It is a multiple choice poll. Has anyone else had this problem?
Which group needs another vote? I may be able to put it in.
I was in one actually. A really extensive one about 10 years ago. THey found both twins seemed to have some metabolic problems I think.
This poll is showing high rates of CFS within families! Much higher than the few studies would lead us to believe.

And, so far, no correlation with significant others. We have some here, so they exist, but it looks like it might be small numbers. Interesting.
