I was diagnosed in the ‘80s.. The problem was the chemicals coming out of new carpet, kitchen cabinets & unfiltered water.. I can not eat frozen prepared food, only organic made from scratch.. Filter water with a Pure filter & rotate food that are consumed..

Hello @dianegerrodette, Welcome to Connect, an online community where patients and caregivers share their experiences, find support and exchange information with others. Thanks for sharing that tip. It is an often overlooked cause of chronic fatigue syndrome and multiple chemical sensitivity. Here is an older article from 2007 on the topic.

Are you able to share a little more about your diagnosis and how you discovered the cause?
