    Thanks Mera.

    I get unexplained swelling too, in my hands, arms, feet and legs. Interestingly, chiropractic tends to clear it up pretty quickly these days.

    Sorry to hear that, Anniekim.

    I am dealing with some brain fog this week myself. So give me a bit of time on this. I won't forget.

    I think for me inflammation plays a part. I am experimenting with anti-inflammatories.

    Hi Jody, very kind of you to remember and reply to my question. I hope you are a bit better at the mo.

    Sorry for being slow on the uptake but I am still a bit ignorant. Would muscle problems be an example of cellular problems, would mito say be systemic (as would pem)? Genetic I understand more.

    I'm no expert on this stuff either. :) Here's what a google search found --
    Cellular dysfunction would affect the cell's ability to take in nutrients, moisture and oxygen and its waste removal. Cell reproduction might be abnormal. I think it would include mitochondria dysfunction, and any problems involving DNA. So in general it would mean anything happening within the cells.
    Systemic dysfunction affects organs and tissues, or affects the body as a whole. I think muscles would fall into this category.
