Re: weight gain
Weight gain is not uncommon with CFIDS. The symptom of post exertional fatigue is one reason as it keeps many of us not able to exercise. Also, eating will often make those with CFIDS feel better because it supplys energy. Eating and not exercising can lead to weight gain. I walk as much as I am able and thus keep my weight in check. This, and minimizing carb intake, helps tremendously.
