I came down with fibromyalgia in 1986 following the trauma of my dad and 17 year old son suddenly. This was before the CDC recognized it as a disorder (1993). The only person I listen to today re: fibro or chronic fatigue syndrome is the doctor who wrote "From Fatigued to Fantastic", Dr. Teitelbaum (sp??). Email me your address and I will fwd his newsletter to you. Dr. T. had chronic fatigue syndrome while in med school and had to take a leave for a year. He has been there and is very committed to natural remedies. I cannot take chemical drugs. I have had more success with Dr. T. than all of the other tdoctors put together (and you can imagine how many doctors I saw).
