Raiden ~ Thank you ever so much for posting the link to Dr. Myhill. You may have posted the one truly helpful bit of info I've come across in years. I'm one of those people that doesn't ever seem to respond to much of anything that's supposed to help. As far as I'm concerned, DR. MYHILL ROCKS!!!!!!! yeah http://www.drmyhill.co.uk/ You can even get her book in PDF format as a FREE download. http://www.drmyhill.co.uk/article.cfm?id=362

So far, I've only experimented with one part of her protocol: d-ribose. This is the first time (I'm talking a couple of decades or more here) that I've ever had such incredible results from anything I've used relative to fibromyalgia symptoms; specifically brain fog and fatigue to the point of being hypersomnolent. (Dr. Myhill equates CFS and Fibromyalgia relative to her protocols.)

When I told my husband about d-ribose he was off to the health food store in record time and presented himself with a 'first dose' in hand just as soon as he could get home and open up the canister. He 'gets' all that biochemical and body processes stuff and Dr. Myhill's understanding makes as much sense as anything we've come across so far. I couldn't believe it! I could actually tell when the d-ribose hit my system. Within an hour, it was like a super thick fog bank had dissipated. I'd forgotten what it was like before I functioned in something other than various levels of a stuporous haze ~ and that's with happy wake-up pills. It seemed as though there was even an improvement in visual focus. Things looked clearer, brighter, and sharper.

I've been doing the re-saturation dosage for a little over a week now. One of the things I've noticed is that it really improves sleep quality. I actually wake up in the morning without being stuck in that ever present, nearly impenetrable bank of brain fog. D-ribose hasn't replaced the need for the meds I take to stay awake, but I've felt so (comparatively) good I actually ran around like a regular person for a couple of days. Now I'm paying the price and have punked out ~ but nowhere near like I was before I started taking saturation levels of the d-ribose. Dr. Myhill does warn about that. But this is enough to make me want to look seriously at doing as much of Dr. Myhill's protocol as I can reasonably implement to see if there's further benefit.

The more I've looked into the stuff, the better it appears to be. If what I've found via online searches is accurate, some cardiologists are using it for patients whose heart muscles were weakened by certain conditions and the body building and athletic communities are putting d-ribose to good use. The only reason I can think of that we haven't heard about it on a zillion infomercials, etc. is cost. It averages around $50 a canister. We may have found a Canadian source that prices around $39 but we don't know if that includes shipping etc.

I don't know if d-ribose will continue to help over the long-term. But I really wanted to post the info about something that might be "good news" to someone other than myself. If anyone else has anything to add relative to Dr. Myhill, d-ribose, or other aspects of Dr. Myhill's protocol, I'd sure love to hear from them!

Note - I just attempted to verify the links to Dr. Myhill's site and got error messages. I hope this isn't adversely portentious. Just in case, here's a link to a recap on a CFS blog that I found: http://www.chronicfatiguetreatments.com/wordpress/treatments/dr-sarah-myhills-cfs-treatment/
Here's another link to a good starting point for info on d-ribose: http://www.driboseupdate.com/

Apologies if this is way more than anyone ever wanted to hear about this. blush I am just so-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo excited to have actually found something that does something!

I believe that Dr. Myhill's protocol is working in the mitochondria (energy factories) of the cells, same as the Malic Acid protocol that I follow, just works at a different site on the Kreb's cycle. I have had excellent results with the Malic acid, 3200 mg a day and have used it for over four years. That, along with my S.A.D. light keep me going all winter long. I can't take d-ribose because I have type2 diabetes. Glad you found something that helps you.

As we all have, I have done loads of research into Fibro and tried loads of different drugs/supplements to help me, seen lots of doctors, Rheumy consultants. 
Supplements help me the best and I have made made some improvements but not enough!  I recently did the MFP test, it's not cheap, but it has showed many deficiences in my body which a GP would never have found.  To help with these deficiences I have a list of new supplements to take, D-Ribose is one of them.  Another test highlighted how bad my Candida was, so I have a plan of action to try and get rid of it.  I will let you know how I get on with my new regime!
Dr Myhill certainly seems to know more about CFS/Fibro than anyone else I have seen.
The other things that have helped me and others with Fibro/CFS is taking Adrenal and Thyroid supplements.  Although my NHS tests were normal, a private doctor, Dr Peatfield showed me this was not the case.  See (www.thyroiduk.org)
I also found taking VegEpa (pure EPA) good as it helped my brain fog and increased my energy level.
