BASIC SURVEY RESULTS Polls

Very little is known about how FM and CFS/ME works. FM/CFS/ME RESOURCES is working towards solving the FM/CFS/ME puzzle by investigating these diseases in their entirety. My hope is to find a cause, which will point to a cure, thereby eradicating these illnesses completely.
