CFS and Neurological/Oddball symptoms

Hi guys:
I've actually fallen off in keeping up with the new developments in the treatment of CFS. Mainly due to the fact that my physician, apparently the only one in the entire metropolitan area to specialize in it is no longer here. I've had a hell of a time trying to find a knowledgeable doctor. They all seem to want to throw this under the Fibro heading, and things that work for Fibro don't necessarily work for CFS and vice versa. Plus, it would be good to know if new symptoms I am getting are just part of the package or something else that could be going on. I am not new to this affliction. I was diagnosed with it in 1987 after a particularly nasty bout of mono.... never recovered, it seems. 2000 I was diagnosed with Fibro....

Anyway... I was wondering if there has been any new research regarding neurological symptoms and CFS. Also, is it common for sufferers to experience balance issues (feeling like you are on a boat in the middle of a stormy ocean), tremor (one side) and other stuff like numbness, smelling things that aren't there and blurry vision that comes and goes? Can a person have abnormalities on a neuro exam due to CFS?

Thanks for your input!
Blessings
