I am thrilled as well !! I think it is important to know which infections are found in both fibro and CFS and how those infections can be treated. I know that mycoplasma is a huge one and this is an infection that I've had and am being treated for. Treatment is slow, but I had made so much progress. As a result, my blood pressure is now stable. My intolerance to gluten has disappeared and my allergies are less severe in general (although still a problem). And for the first time in over 15 years, my periods are NORMAL. I was told that on these pathogen killing treatments, that eventually my hormones would adjust. I was skeptical, but it is true !!!!
I know that Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum discusses mycoplasma infections in his revised book "From Fatigued to Fantastic". Of course Dr. Teitelbaum has CFS himself (or should I say had ?) and is one of the leading CFS and fibromyalgia experts.
