I thought it was odd, I had always read that the Epstein Barr virus was one of the huge markers of this illness. Yes, you are correct though. They are just now touching the very tip of the iceberg as to the cause of these illnesses. I still think that FM and CFS, run hand in hand with autoimmune illnesses such as Lupus, RA, and so forth. They have so many similar things as one another, and it just seems they are too close not to all be inter related to "the autoimmune system" and its response to what happens when it is compromised in one way or the other. When we have "too much" of our immune system fighting our bodies, that is not a good thing. Then our own bodies are fighting against themselves, which is was Lupus, RA, and so forth are doing. Then you take other AI illnesses such as diabetes 1 and many others and either the AI system is not making enough of something, or not making it at all, or the body for some reason is unable to process what it needs to so the body can respond properly. I feel in the near future we are going to make headway in the fact that many of our illnesses have to do with the AI system, and the way our bodies react to what is happening. Even cancer has some unique properties much like many of the AI diseases. Either it grows out of itself and becomes over powering of the body, or the body shuts down and does not make a certain thing we need thus the AI system again is involved. It is like the response of "inflammation". They are seeing an inflammatory response out of so many illnesses. That response is one of the keys to diagnosing just about every illness out there that is chronic in nature. Inflammation has a huge involvement in CFS, FM, ME, Lupus, RA, osteoarthritis, look at allergic responses, you have a sudden inflammatory process that causes all of the problems from an allergic reaction. Research is getting better, and showing more progress in all of these chronic illnesses, yet we still need so much more. If we are ever going to finally get the "final" blow in and stop them from harming us, we have to have those researchers, the people that go in and volunteer, the companies making the medications to make clinical trials with, our scientists and doctors out there using their own genius minds to begin to uncover all that happens when these illnesses take over, and I feel headstrong that we will finally have the answers, and maybe not a cure soon, but at least a way to stop these before they become so horribly chronic and do so much damage. The main issue is DIAGNOSING THEM EARLY!! This bull about it taking YEARS AND YEARS to finally know what is wrong is just BULL!!! We have to get someone to find a way to absolutely know what you have, and find out very quickly so treatment can begin early in life. NOT after these have just taken over your life. Then the medical system takes a stab in the dark, throws tests and medications at you, and sees if something "sticks"... well that is NOT going to get us well! We need more specific tests, and ways to get through and know for sure very, very quickly, such as we do with many cancers, so we can treat immediately... I so wished I was a bit younger, and had stayed away from marriage for awhile and went on to be a nurse, and possibly onto being a research doctor. If I had only known of course what I do today, I would definitely be someone in this field of medicine, getting into the heart of these chronic illnesses and how to diagnose, treat, and hopefully cure them... some day maybe my own great grand kids maybe involved... we never know...
