They are 2 different illnesses. Fibro is more pain then fatigue & Chronic Fatigue is more fatigue than pain. I have both of them. With fibromyalgia, it breaks up like this: fibro covers the fibers, nerves, myal is muscles, gia is pain. I've done a lot of reading about both fibro & CFS & well they are similar the main focus is different

chronic fatigue syndrome is a diagnosis in itself, as it relates to fibromyalgia, but I cannot imagine it can define fibro all by itself. Chronic fatigue is a result of the many symptoms that fibro brings out: pain, brain fog, disrupted sleep cycles, just to name a few. And, it is also the result of other disease processes that are similar and most often co-exist with fibro. My hashimoto's is a very good example, because when that has issues, it brings on chronic fatigue syndrome that can be very difficult to get out of until the lab values correct themselves, which does not happen overnight, but usually takes months. Also, menopause, lupus, migraines, all these issues bring forth 'chronic fatigue syndrome'.....
good grief.....a stressful job, or even motherhood can create 'chronic fatigue syndrome'!! the more I think about that article, the more it makes me just a little irritated......which uses up energy stores, and brings about....yep....you guessed it......chronic fatigue syndrome! caused by people who have no comprehension of what it is we have to endure and deal with on a daily, ongoing basis......arrrggggrrrrrr.......gggrrrroooowwwwl......
sorry.....that just flew outta my mouth....
