How Many People Got FMS Directly After Having A Bad Virus, Like Bronchitis Or Pneumonia?

How Many People Got FMS Directly After Having A Bad Virus, Like Bronchitis Or Pneumonia?

I got FMS directly after I had pneumonia. There were no other identifiable triggers. My aunt got rheumatoid arthritis, 15 years ago, after a bad flu.

Dr. Montoya at Stanford Medical Center is studying diseases related to CFS as post viral syndromes. He's trying to find and treat the cause, not just the symptoms. I have a consult at his clinic late next month. So I'm wondering, who else got FMS after a bad virus??

I like drinking it in the morning, and read some comments about stopping. I know sugar will have to stop, because I feel worse the next day. But I don't know for sure...
