Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey
I should note at the outset that this review is based on an audio version of the galleys and the epilogue from the finished work. Julie Rehmeyer sent me the final version as a PDF, but for some reason my text to voice software (Kurzweil) had issues with it. I understand that it is...

    I've noticed that when I get some kind of flu my FMS pain (specially the allodynia) gets better.
    I still have some "normal flu pain" where you ache all over but I can distinguish it from the FMS pain.

    After a while with fever it gets better.

    Now there's four theories for that:

    - The fever works like some kind of hypertermia treatment.

    - I normally eat a loot less and only light stuff wich let my digestive system rest. (something like fasting)

    - I take antibiotics and that work in some way for some reason.

    - I take analgesics (wich normally don't work at all... but I never take it as much as I do when I'm sick)

    Any thoughts on that? Any similar experience?

    This has been a very common recently asked question, do not know the thread but perhaps someone else can link it.
