Hi at the moment I don't have full blown CFS, I have been diagnosed on the "spectrum". I have had bad bouts of it in the past. Lately, I've been getting lower back pain and my calf leg has been pulled and is taking a while to heal. The pull in the calf didn't seem to be caused by anything in particular. But it just keeps on flaring up. I just went to a physio because it was getting bad and pain was healing and the transferring to some other part of the body. I also get costochondritis and I have slight flares the moment, as well as sharp pains in my ears. Feels like what I imagine an ear infection would be but it doesn't last long. Might have the pain once or twice a week a few times a day and then it disappears for a few weeks and then comes back again. Do you think this is related to CFS? I have had joint pain in the past in my back and legs and just didn't put together that it could be related to CFS. I have had times when the pain completely isn't a there and I assuming that is when I am in remission. I can have months and months without pain and then all of my sudden lots of joints play up. I feel like I have this slight infection in my whole body at the moment and although my CFS symptoms at the moment are not full-blown, it sort of attacking body parts a little bit. Does that make sense? My fatigue symptoms are there, but I am not bed ridden too often. More just exhausted throughout the day and unmotivated. I haven't had a cold in years, but if feels like instead of my body detoxing through a cold, the infection just sits there and attacks my immune system in little bouts.
