John you put that so well. No fog for you tonight.
I believe mine was brought on by a long period of relentless stress during a custody battle that felt like it was sucking the life out of me. Everything turned out okay but I started going down hill with horrible anxiety, fatigue and then finally pain. That's been 10 yrs ago. I stayed pretty stable and then suffered a horrific loss 17 mos ago and it's been down hill every since. The pain has spread and I have knots on top of knots but the pain isn't as big a problem for me as the fatigue is.
So for me it came on slowly.
luv and hugs
