Chronic Fatigue Message Board


Chronic Fatigue Board Index


I have been searching for an answer to my health problems that continue to get worse with each "relapse". I am hoping someone else has experienced something similar and can point me in the right direction of a diagnosis or a lifestyle plan of healing. or, perhaps a Dr or med student can offer advice.
I appreciate your input and consideration.
