Re: According to the horse's mouth... (Amaranth Rose)
You never have taken anything I post seriously, why should things change now?
You mean take what you say on faith? I don't often take what people say on faith but there are a few people i've come to trust enough not to [constantly] check up on.
CFIDS is a disease, caused by some as yet unelucidated infectious agent.
Maybe it is and maybe it isn't. Evidence so far suggests it isn't. But why let evidence get in the way.
Hint: it's probably smaller than a _Plasmoodium vivax_.
Well, start looking then. I wish you luck in your search.
You may trivialize and put down all you like, but you are still wrong.
I havent trivialized the syndrome, only the doomsayers.
In the same way that Rheumatoid arthritis is a disease, perhaps, an errant response to an immunological insult that becomes self-perpetuating long after the initial infectious agent is dead and gone.
Rheumatoid arthritis can be objectively measured. CFS cannot.
You're wrong. Orthostatic Hypotension is an effect, not a cause.
It could be an effect of the same thing that causes CFIDS, or it could be something that tends to travel with it.
Or it could be a purple monster in your basement. I certainly cannot prove the monster does not exist so...
Read Osler's Web. Don't bother me until you do.
The scientific reviews do not hold it as a very scientific work so i'll pass - thanks anyway. Oh - and if you don't want to be bothered by me, don't click my posts.
