Over the weekend, I have read two different articles of people dying from CFIDS. I am certain there has been a lot more, yet because of how the medical community views CFIDS, they diagnose the deaths as something else.
Please click here to read about the 32-year-old woman who died from acute aneuric renal failure, dehydration and unable to produce urine, as a result of CFIDS. She had been diagnosed with CFIDS for six years before her death.
Click here to read about 23-year-old Casey Fero, who died in his sleep from myocarditis, as a result of CFIDS. He was diagnosed at the age of 9 with CFIDS. According to the coroner’s report, the forensic pathologist found that Casey’s heart was infected with disease, due to inflammation and the tissue being full of viral infection.
“Using an ultra-sensitive type of electrocardiogram, Dr. A. Martin Lerner of Wayne State University has found evidence that EBV and cytomegaloviruses in CFS patients has caused heart damage. I do not know whether this research has been replicated, but under the circumstances, it takes on a new importance. There is evidence that HHV-6 can infect the heart. Other possible culprits include Lyme Disease, mycoplasma, and Chlamydia.”
Maybe now that there are people who are “officially” dying of CFIDS, we will be taken more seriously? I guess we’ll have to wait and see…
