Fibromyalgia (chronic fatigue syndrome) contagious
Could I have transmitted the pathogen that's causing my fibromyalgia (chronic fatigue syndrome), and which I know is in my nervous system, to my 87-year-old mother, who was diagnosed with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy?  Her mind and body are being destroyed.  Am I contagious?

P.S.  I'm sure the transmission would have had to have been through saliva (a kiss on the mouth).

No, CFT and fibromyalgia are not contagious in any way, shape, or form.  As for what your jmother has, do a general search online for your mother's neuropathy, put in all those words for it, and then put "causes," so you can find out what makes that happen to a person, but I imagine age is a risk factor.... but certainly not the conditions you have.
