Question I Have FM, Could I Have CFS/ME TOO???

I have been dx with FM for about 3 yrs and over the past year it has been kicking my butt. Some day the fatigue is worse than the pain. When I am tired I have brain fog so bad that it scares me. When I try to cook (which I haven't done in some time now), I get so tired that I don't make sense when I talk...it's like there is nothing left..no energy no nothing.

I have also been dx with Chronic Tonsilitis(have had for many many years). The ENT doc actually suggested taking out my tonsils but said it would be hard for someone my age(42). My throat has also been sore and he said I had GERD(reflex) and put me on medicine for that. Now I am having a upper and lower scope to make sure nothing is going on except the IBS(that's what I think). I have had some trouble getting small pills stuck in my throat and have to eat something solid to get them down.

I never have a fever.

Does this sound like it could be CFS??? My Rheum dx me with FM and I am sure I have it but was wondering if I had CFS too.

Thoughts???

The two often go hand in hand. Most rheumys are not savvy about CFS.
