I just remembered another online resource that I found not too long ago. It's called Phoenix Rising. People from all over the world discussing chronic fatigue/fibromyalgia and what has worked for them, what has not worked. There are suggestions for detoxification procedures since it *could* have started with over exposure to some chemical or even such things as copper or other substance that can be damaging when you get too much of it. Some researchers have posted on that site and it's active with suggestions on things that can help you.

Since the industrial age took off many illnesses appeared that never reared their head before.. mostly allergic reactions to substances. , not only allergies but other autoimmune illnesses. some of these illnesses were never heard of before.. our world now in the last 100 years has changed out of recognition with smelly shampoos. perfumes , air fresheners etc made with chemcals household products for cleaning full of toxins that are not required for cleaning.. many more cars on the road. more pollution , and our bodies cant cope..

Many times people diagnosed with Fibromyalgia actually have Lyme Disease, that is why they don't feel better when they do Fibro treatments. Have you ever been tested for Lyme?

I live in New England where Lyme is an epidemic. Many many people are diagnosed with other things (Fibro, MS, CFS, ect.) and finally get the correct diagnosis of Lyme, start treatment, and start to feel better.

Just putting another thought out there.

Lyme disease is an epidemic! So that could be it as well, but beware on getting it tested, they only test certain strains, so if you have one that they aren't looking for, it can come back NEG but still be the problem. I would recommend seeing a certain type of doctor in your area, but I guess that's call advertising, so good luck.

Yes indeed. There are some 70,000 + chemicals and they are everywhere. That is why cancer is on the increase. How long will it take for our leaders to see this and put a stop to it. Of course you realize that we would have to roll our lifestyles back 50 or more years. Personally I wouldn't mind. I'd miss the internet, but could find plenty else to do..like buy more real books.
