International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    I am interested to know if anyone else has had both conditions? My energy levels were, unsurprisingly, significantly improved when I was hyperthyroid. Taking the meds to lower my thyroid levels, and being inadequately monitored (in my opinion) led to me becoming temporarily hypothyroid. My ME was exacerbated considerably and I have never recovered.

    One of the reasons I am asking now is that I have just read an abstract about successful treatment of the TSH antibodies in Graves with Rituximab.... Those pesky B cells again!

    I don't have this, but I have met some who do. There are few around with Graves and ME. I hope you get some answers.
