I have in fact already checked out the Fibro 101 page and love it, it is a great help. I checked out all the sites end to end when I first joined the Fibro forum. Such a great resource!!!
Let me try to clarify what I meant with my original post. I wanted to bring to light how there is new research being done on the common underlying symptoms that many diseases and disorders seem to share, especially Lyme Disease, Fibromyalgia, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Many researchers now believe that Lyme Disease may be the cause of so many disorders including Fibromyalgia, CFS, etc. I also wanted to see if anyone had any more insight to related articles and information on current research results. I find this as a very interresting and relative topic myself and am sure that most of you do as well. I would even like to participate in a study to help find answers that so many of us chronic pain sufferers are needing.
Check out these articles if you haven't yet, they are quite interesting:
