'Fibro and CFS don't occur together' Whaaat???

I saw a new rheumy, Dr. V's nurse practitioner, the other day.  I am glad that she renewed the scripts I needed and glad that she takes my fibro seriously.  However, I asked her about the possibility of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and she told me she doesn't believe that they can occur in the same person.  Whaaat???

FMS and CFS occur in the same person commonly.  She also doesn't take my Ehlers-Danlos seriously.  Sigh.  At least she is giving me the medicine I need for my fibro: Lyrica, Celebrex, and Flexeril.  I think that the Celebrex helps the EDS, not the fibro, but either way it really helps.

I'm kind of confused and frustrated now.  I honestly don't know if I have CFS and I know that they are trying to get a drug approved for it, would be nice to know one way or the other.

Take care, dear readers.
