Hello everyone from a CFS'er in rainy London. While obviously not exactly delighted to be on here announcing my ill health I am glad to have found this board, it seems like a useful resource (thanks Stumbleupon).

I wanted to ask if anyone has had any significantly good effects from alternative treatment, acupuncture, chinese medicine, homeopathy - that sort of thing. Ive had a bad flare up recently thats almost bordering on fibromyalgia and Im determined to find something that works better than just watching my diet and resting a lot.

Hi toast and welcome. I'm sorry your symptoms have been so bad. I haven't tried any alternative treatment, but I have thought about it and have dome some reading about it. I've read that some people have some pretty positive experiences with accupuncture and Chinese medicine, but you have to make sure you find someone who is qualified and well trained. It's also important that if you try these things that you need to let your doctor know to make sure that it won't interfere with any meds you are currently taking.

Diagnosis:  Suspected Lupus 2004; Raynauds 2006; CFS 1991; Mono 1985

Meds:  Plaquenil 400mg; tramadol 100mg 3-4x daily; Amitriptyline 10mg; Neurontin 200mg; Steriod Cream and Mouth Rinse for tongue and mouth ulcers; Hydrocodone 5/500 prn for severe pain
