Dr. Santana Diego:
There is another name for this condition. Its called somatization disorder. Its been around for hundreds of years–only the name changes. If you read Charcot’s original works, you’ll see the the late 1800s version of CFS and Fibromyalgia.
We spend so much of our health care dollar on this psychiatric condition, when that money should be spent on immunizations for children, smoking cessation, good prenatal care, and the general effects of poverty. The literature suggests that getting more exercise is the best treatment for CFS.
