I wonder how many of us, compared to the "normal" population have had other health problems before being hit by ME? I believe many had issues before like: gut problems ibs allergies sinus problems asthma and lung problems inflammatory bowel disease cardiac and vascular problems. migraines lupus lyme disease any autoimmune disease. ASD syndrome sleep problems anxiety I am concentrating here BEFORE we got hit head on with ME. It would be interesting to see if it is in greater concentration with ME people. They keep talking that besides the "event" that brings it on, there is a pre-disposition. It would be nice to put it in a poll format. I don't know how to do that. It would be like our own personal study.
