I am looking for any advice of what has helped you recover from PEM/PENE symptoms, besides just resting it out. Has there been anything that has sped up you recovery from crashing? For me, my PEM/PENE symptoms seem to start a downward cycle that is so hard to climb back from. Sleep is one of the symptoms that become aggravated when I am crashing. This in turn affects pain, weakness and other symptoms. It is not just a matter of taking a nap or resting for a day. It takes a long time to build my state back up to where it started from. Meanwhile, I just lay in bed and am at the mercy of time...just waiting it out until I am capable to bring back some kind of function. Any advice as to how to speed this up would be much appreciated.
