Hi all, I'm looking for M.E. individuals with the same/similar symptoms as me. I found it such a huge range of people with ME that I am rather curious to learn more about the ones that are like me to see if there is a more common link that can be established. Thanks in advance to anyone who can contribute! MY STORY: - Sudden Acute Onset 28 yr old female (I am now 42) - Vaccines and or virus suspected at onset - Previously very active, but did get a lot of colds, throat and sinus infections which lead to a lot of antibiotics I worked full time, travelled, played sports etc. I would 'catch' something, get sick for a couple days, sleep alot and take antibiotics and then would go 100% again until the final straw broke. I now fluctuate between 40-60%. Still have regular crashes and occasional relapses. Have never felt healthy since that first day onset. SYMPTOMS: - Severe fatigue - Intense brain fog, cognitive issues (a more detailed MRI showed issues) - Frequent gut issues - IBS - Orthostatic Intolerance (positive tilt table) - Unrefreshed sleep (don't got into REM fully) - Viral like symptoms in crash - Always feel cold - Frequent thirst and urination - not diabetic - VO2 and exercise testing showed impairment - NO PAIN ISSUES (although there is stiffness) These are the major things, anything else I would consider for me, more background noise. If you can relate strongly, pls message here or me personally. Thank you!!
