    One mom's journey through the world of chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and a host of other invisible chronic illnesses. Help, hope and encouragement for your own journey.
    Welcome to Moms In Flight
    Moms in Flight is for anyone suffering from a Chronic Illness of any kind and a mom... moms-to-be, moms raising children right now, Grandmoms, moms with grown children, empty-nest moms... in the midst of that illness.  Let's face it! Whether you're just starting a family, or your children are grown, we can all benefit from each other and be uplifting to one another. You may be at the beginning of your journey and just finding out what you're dealing with.  You may be in the middle of your journey:  knowing what you have, but not sure what to do next.  Or, you may be near the end of your journey:  you know what it is, you've accepted it, and, well, now what Moms in Flight is a place to come for encouragement, help in day-to-day living with chronic illness, and eventually, "Soaring Above Chronic Illness." We don't profess to have all the answers.  We're still finding them out for ourselves.  But we want this to be a place of encouragement.  A place where we all can feel safe, warm and cared for.  Let's face it.  Being ill with a chronic illness, especially one that is invisible to the outside world, can be very frustrating. You can check out The Journey, where we introduce ourselves and, well, tell you a little about our respective journeys.

Multiple Chemical Sensitivity- Heightened Senses Network is an online chemical injury support group and forum for those who have been chemically injured and suffer from any of the following chemically related illnesses: Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS), Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), Environmental Illness, Sick Building Syndrome, Toxic Injury, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and Gulf War Syndrome among many other forms of chemical injury. MCS is a disorder triggered by exposures to chemicals in the environment. Individuals with MCS can have symptoms from chemical exposures at concentrations far below the levels tolerated by most people. Symptoms typically occur in more than one area in the body, such as the nervous system and the lungs. Exposure may be from the air, from food or water, or through skin contact. The symptoms may come and go with exposures, though some individuals may have delayed reactions. As MCS gets worse, reactions become more severe and increasingly chronic, often significantly affecting bodily functions. (Envionmental Illness Society of Canada)

    Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
    by B. Vincent Maier Homepage Research Subject Index Cancer Chinese herbal medicines have been in use for 4,000 years, yet their properties are just now being studied on a cellular and molecular level. Some 500 herbs are currently being used by Chinese doctors, which they can combine to make innumerable remedies. One that has been tested relatively extensively is Juzen taiho-to (TJ-48), which is a hand prepared mixture of ten dried and pulverized herbal plants. In Chinese traditional medicine it has been used to treat cases of extreme fatigue, and anemia. However, recent studies have focused on its ability to reduce the toxicity of anti-tumor agents. Researchers also noted that TJ-48 augments antibody production and activates macrophages by oral administration. The exact mechanism of pharmacological action are still unclear. Other studies by Chinese and Japanese investigators have shown a role between herbal preparations containing zinc and reduced symptoms of fatigue and related conditions. Tests done by Yu-Q, et. al. demonstrate that the amount of available zinc is much higher in an herbal preparation than in an equal molar amount of zinc sulfate, and the clinical effects are noticeably greater. There are also less adverse side effects with the herbal form. This is because zinc derived from plants is bound to an amino acid, or chelated, which makes it easier to be absorbed by the body and carried to where it is needed. Their study suggested that the herbal preparation they were examining could raise the zinc level and cure anemia.

    (Today, CFS also is known as myalgic encephalomyelitis, postviral fatiguesyndrome, and chronic fatigue and immune dysfunction syndrome.).
    Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
    What is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?
    We all get tired. Many of us at times have felt depressed. But the mystery known as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is not like the normal ups and downs we experience in everyday life. The early sign of this illness is a strong and noticeable fatigue that comes on suddenly and often comes and goes or never stops. You feel too tired to do normal activities or are easily exhausted with no apparent reason. Unlike the mind fog of a serious hangover, to which researchers have compared CFS, the profound weakness of CFS does not go away with a few good nights of sleep. Instead, it slyly steals your energy and vigor over months and sometimes years.
    How CFS Begins and Its Symptoms
    For many people, CFS begins after a bout with a cold, bronchitis, hepatitis, or an intestinal bug. For some, it follows a bout of infectious mononucleosis, or mono, which temporarily saps the energy of many teenagers and young adults. Often, people say that their illnesses started during a period of high stress. In others, CFS develops more gradually, with no clear illness or other event starting it. Unlike flu symptoms, which usually go away in a few days or weeks, CFS symptoms either hang on or come and go frequently for more than six months. CFS symptoms include:

    Acetylcholine Mediated Vasodilatation in the Microcirculation of Patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
    Research into Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is hindered by the considerable heterogeneity seen across patients, but several reports have highlighted disturbances to cholinergic mechanisms in terms of central nervous system activity, neuromuscular function and autoantibodies to muscarinic cholinergic receptors. This paper examines an altogether separate function for acetylcholine and that is its role as an important and generalized vasodilator.

    Overview Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a complicated disorder characterized by profound fatigue that doesn't improve with bed rest and may worsen with physical or mental activity. Of all chronic illnesses, CFS is one of the most mysterious. Unlike infections, it has no clear cause. Unlike conditions such as diabetes or anemia, there's essentially nothing to measure. And unlike conditions such as heart disease, there are relatively few treatment options. CFS may occur after an infection such as a cold, bronchitis, mononucleosis, hepatitis or intestinal illness. It can start during or shortly after a period of high stress or come on gradually without any clear starting point and any obvious cause. CFS is a flu-like condition that can drain your energy and sometimes last for years. People previously healthy and full of energy may experience extreme fatigue, weakness and headaches as well as painful joints, muscles and lymph nodes.

    Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and its Connection to ADD/ADHD
    After many delays, and revisions, this manuscript represents an attempt to summarize much of the background and current literature to date regarding this confusing phenomenon we call CFS/CFIDS and its potential connection to ADHD in children (and adults).
    In writing this, I am attempting to help physicians, patients, educators and others further understand this complex phenomenon. I have attempted to separate what is "accepted" and/or verified by literature publications, versus my "opinions" and "positions."
    To all of you reading this, I hope this helps add some insight and understanding of the complex epiphenomena. To all of you who may have and are suffering with this illness, I hope you will soon see an acceleration of our clinical knowledge, such that successful treatment protocols are available in the near future for all.
    The question is often asked, "What can be done as patients." With recognition by our medical establishment of the legitimacy of this problem, they are encouragingly on a path to find answers to verify or disprove clinical opinions and further basic science, with an attitude significantly different from even a year ago. This author believes the critical need for patients (via hopefully corporate or private funding sources) is to accelerate steps that will "jump-start" controlled therapies, while our medical establishment searches for all the scientific answers.

    Immune system blamed for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

    Melatonin could be the secret behind chronic fatigue syndrome
    Scientists are confident they have found a physical cause for the controversial condition Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. They believe it may be caused by the body's reaction to stress which effectively leads to the immune system becoming overloaded. Researchers found that people with CFS produced unusually high levels of the hormone melatonin, which stimulates the immune system and plays an important role in promoting sleep. Melatonin is vital for maintaining the body's correct diurnal rhythms - helping a person sleep at night and stay awake during the day. For this reason it is used to treat insomnia and jet-lag. The researchers at Guy's and St Thomas's Hospitals, London, are convinced that the hormone is the key to CFS. They believe their findings may lead to the much-misunderstood condition being re-classified as an immune system disorder. Some doctors still believe CFS to be "all in the mind", although most now agree that to some degree it has a physical cause.
