You may have heard about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS); two syndromes with overlapping symptoms. These conditions have contributed hugely to mental and physical disability in our communities. CFS has been a subject of controversy for many years but now it is officially recognized by Centers of Disease Control (CDC). CFS affects 3 out of every 1000 Americans; most patients are Caucasian women between the ages of 20-50 years. FMS affects more than 3 to 6 million people in the United States, and it is responsible for more disability than rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
