I'm beginning to think maybe my daughter has M.E.   I'm planning to take her to a naturepathic doctor very soon.  The symptoms are a lot the same but FM is an autoimmune disorder & ME is viral I think.

Hi lettuce, sorry to hear your daughter might have ME. The more common name for ME
is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. No one really knows for sure what causes it. Fibromyalgia is
not classified as an autoimmune disorder, although some researchers believe it may be
autoimmune related. Both disorders have some overlap symptoms, primarily the fatigue.

HealingWell does have a Chronic Fatigue forum. There are some members with Fibro
who also have CF. Hope you can get some answers.

The best of luck to your daughter
