A possible long-term effect of ME.... 

Thought this was very interesting. Got it from a fibromyalgia Facebook page:

ME/CFS associated with later life non-Hodgkin lymphoma: Medicare statistics

Autoimmune diseases with a higher incidence of non-Hodgkin lymphoma include Sjogren's syndrome (40 times greater) and celiac disease. I happen to have all three. A biopsy in 2005 of one of my lymph nodes revealed abnormal cell development. While it was not lymphoma, it could be described as pre-cancerous. It's something my doctors are keeping an eye on. So far, so good.
