I am a mom and have suffered from CFS, my kids do not have it but I will tell you doctors told me it was depression and tried to put me on meds for depression I had no time to be a zombie,, I found a product that I have used for 1 1/2 years and I feel amazing no side effects it also is great for many other problem Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Chrons Disease, Immune Problems... If you would like more info please email me.. lissajjohnson@gmail.com

I am in the same boat. My sister and I both have CFS and I have 1 daughter with it. She was diagnosed at age 22, but looking back, has had problems with chronic pain and fatigue since about age 16. It's rough, but we get through it together. We just know that there are some days when all you can do is "base camp" on the sofa. Heat seems like it helps the most, so we sleep with an electric blanket, using heating pads on the sorest muscles. There are no specific tests, but we have great doctors in Omaha. If you would like a name, send me an email and I'll let you know who my daughter sees in Omaha. Best wishes to you.....denaross@msn.com
