PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

Our daughter presented at 14 with severe headaches, joint pain, muscle and tendon pain,severe fatigue, mental disturbances, depression for 5 years. Was diagnosed with CFS and Fibromyalgia with no relief...eventually diagnosed with bipolar disorder. After The Western Blot blood test given at age 19 she showed accutely positive for Lyme Disease with Bartonella and Mycoplasma bacterial co-infections...One of the antibiotics that is recommended is Azithromycin. COULD CFS BE CAUSED BY THE LYME SPIROCHETTE AND NO ONE IS TESTING FOR IT?
