aquarius, it was a really slow gradual improvement. But like I said, I still went through times about
once a month or every few months when my body would crash and I'd spend a few days in bed and then I'd be able to get back to normal activity. I also required more rest than the average person even while in remission. Even while in remission I'd go to the doctor once or twice a year for overwhelming fatigue. I still consider all of that remission because basically I was able to live a normal life on most days.
I do know what you mean when you say you feel like you are dying - there are days I feel so bad that I'm sure I'm going to die from this. It's sometimes hard for me now to sort out CFS stuff and lupus stuff because a lot of the symptoms are similar - I imagine I'm dealing with both. You really should get a good doctor to look into the implants. I don't have experience with them but have heard horror stories about
them and have read about
cases where women got extremely sick du to problems with implants.
I really help you get some help from the doc you are seeing in New York- make sure to mention the implants. Hang in there and take care.
