    Do those help with keeping exacerbation of CFS symptoms as part of PEM at bay too, or did it only help with muscle issues, etc? If it helps with preventing PEM in general I would be very interested in trying it. I do have OI too.

    I am still learning about when to increase salt and how to take the meds. But example, I can do like a supermarket trip when before I couldn't. I have not gone paralyzed (bad crash) since I have been on it. It mainly helps to be vertical, also with that muscle fatigue feeling I get in legs like when I go up a flight of stairs (Now I can go up and not think about it).

    I don't get sick easily at small exertion so it allows me to do much more. I still cannot run, I avoid bending over and like cleaning a house. Everything else I do. Is hard to explain, I still have CFS but before I had to calculate every little step. Example if I needed to go upstairs is like "OH God I have to go up" and it was like a project. Now is like oh I need this from upstairs and I just go get it. Is like normal things are more mechanical instead of a big deal. Not sure if it make sense.

    Thanks Inester. Has it helped to just prevent muscle fatigue or also prevents viral PEM symptoms? I am in a crash with viral type symptoms now, which is why I asked. If meds could help prevent that it would be great.
