CFS

Posting this for the people with CFS on my friends list. I haven't read that much about CFS but I didn't know about the connection with Glandular fever.

Scientists from the University of Sydney and the University of NSW have discovered who is most likely to get the debilitating condition and it has nothing to do with age, sex, personality traits or mental health as many people thought.

Chronic fatigue syndrome is most commonly triggered by an acute illness, like glandular fever, and it is the severity of this illness that decides whether you will develop the syndrome, the research found.
