Hope you are resting comfortably & strength/ energy returns soonest. Wonderful that you had opportunity to celebrate yesterday !
Your observation re:neurology sounds right to me - my pm dr 'specializes in fibro (many years of research) yet when I ask him if such-&-such is a symptom of it he answers 'no'. The fibro thread on here has shown me that either many of us have other conditions or specialists disagree what the symptoms are for fibro. For almost 3 yr workmans comp has refused to approve an appointment w/neurologist so there is so much I do not know about
Just went over to fibro thread & found this - going to go back & check out the link..
"..Given that CFS and FM often overlap, and that 70 percent of FM patients meet the criteria of CFS , I think this information could be very relative to some FM patients, or the ones that also experience overwhelming fatigue or could be said to have many of the symptoms of CFS. But, for the record, this study was done on CFS patients.
So, if you have CFS, or CFS in addition to FM, you could be dealing with an illness with an inflammatory component: Inflammation of the nervous system. .""
