Alan, it depends on your symptoms. Before getting an accurate diagnosis of Lyme Disease, which many now think underlies most cases of CFS, I saw 4 Rheumatologists, 2 Endocrinologists, an Infectious Disease doc, and numerous internists. I now see a doc who specializes in CFIDS/Fibro/Lyme. This person, finally
, performed the proper blood tests, which should include tests for Herpes, HIV, Epstein Barr, Mycoplasma, Chlamydia P., Candida, and many more, including the usual WBC/ RBC panel, etc. Find a good doc. That is paramount and, I might add, not so easy to do
