    Thanks Cindi, I get those as well. Just wasn't sure which symptoms were classified as neurological.

    Valentijn, It's great you have support despite being in a different country from where you grew up. Like you, I had past episodes for many years but none like the one I've had this year. This one seems unrelenting and very severe. At the time of course I had no idea what I had, I only got a diagnosis recently.

    These are the major indicators of a flare for me. I don't know what triggers them. Before symptoms of CFS started to appear 3.5 years ago (after the first sinus infection I ever had) I had no known allergies, so I don't know if I suddenly developed any or not. Blood tests show I have low immune system functioning, so I suspect it is my immune system coping with whatever invaders it detects.

    anna_o I really feel my immune system is acting up too. I've had allergies for many years but what happens with the CFS is a whole different feeling to me although my allegies do get worse too, which my lab tests confirmed. At first they tried to say my CFS was an allergy, that was really absurd to me but I definitely can buy that CFS worsens my allergies.
