Ginger, thanks for sharing what has worked for you. I have been curious about
DHEA for a long time and even bought a bottle once but was too chicken to try it (I was afraid I'd end up with a beard, lol). Maybe I'll talk to my rheumy about
it the next time I see him. My ANA is positive and I've been on plaquenil for about
2 years. It upset my stomach a lot for the first month, but then it settled down.
I do think that all of us with cfs have to pay close attention to our health and be very aware of new symptoms and get them checked to make sure you are not developing something in addition to CFS.
HairsprayQueen, I've been online looking for heated slippers and gloves that I can wear in the house. We're having a really hot summer right now, but my feet and hands still tend to be cold.
It's nice to see a few new people here on the forum. For some reason the CFS forum is usually pretty slow (maybe we're all too tired to post much).
