Welcome to the CFS board. I have not heard of using a tanning bed to treat pain, fatigue or any CFS-related symptoms. I've never gone in a tanning bed, but when I spend time in the sun, it increases my fatigue. But that is just my personal reaction. The only real danger I know about using a tanning bed, is skin cancer. As far a risking developing skin cancer, tanning beds have the same risk as the sun.
