Didi has found an article relating chronic fatigue syndrome to CSA (child sexual abuse).

I have thought their must be a link, but now it is entering the literature.

Do you feel tired a lot of the time? Do you overeat to try to replenish your strength?

There is also a link to Asperger's syndrome.

Check it out!

Thanks for the article info. I never would have considered that there might be a connection with childhood abuse and chronic fatigue syndrome.

I'm pretty sure I've had this. It is hard to get a doctor to recognize it. It seems like one of those nebulous things that a lot of people think they have. But as I look at my recent photo, I see very deep circles under my eyes, almost like bruises. I know I had a vitamin B-12 deficiency also.

That's why we need a Helth and Wellbeing forum here.

I have the same difficulty with Dr's not acknowledging or not knowing what to do with this issue.

Maybe we are still so unique they have no idea what to do - lol.

Lets educate them - smile

Peace,
DJ

There is a lot of information on WebMD and other internet locations concerning medical issues including CFS.
