In brief: Chronic fatigue!

Fatigue is difficult dx.
It could be sleep, mental or physical stress. Inflammation in the body causes fatigue, as do most types of autoimmune problems. Chronic mono, characterized by the presence of early antigen, long after the original illness can cause fatigue. Any chronic viral illness, hep b, hep c, hiv, can cause fatigue. But one common, and overlooked problem is being out of shape!

In brief: Cher & her Dr.

Why would anyone care what cher has or claims she has or whether she has recovered.
Her medical conditions are her private business and although we may enjoy her performances we have no business prying into confidential information.
