This is not an uncommon symptom with CFIDS. I also know how terrible one can feel in a "flare". I'm in one myself right now. I have tried many things throughout the years, but what always works best for me is Chinese herbs. I see an OMD who takes my pulses (not the same as the western pulse, but gives him a reading on each organ system) and then prescribes just for my system. This may not be for you, but just thought I'd pass it along. Chinese medicine is about balancing the body and that makes sense to me.
