International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    i was wondering if anyone has or had very severe constipation and if it made your ME worse? Mine is constant (can go a month without going to the toilet despite medication) and do wonder if it makes other symptoms worse. I know it was pressing on my organs in the past (showed up as doing so on scans) so caused things like shortness of breath but I've been wondering recently if it contributes to other symptoms or if it's one of those things you just adjust to and get on with (like pain)

    Constipation seems to be a normal part of ME but a month is far to long.

    a million +1 thing can cause constipation. named by the sort of diagnose done.

    nerves paralysis, high serotonine, low serotonine, missing microbes, wrong microbes, helminths ... blah blah blah

    of course its bad as toxins cumulate in the blood, tissue...

    by 30something a colleague told me he had two bowel movements a day.
    i thought he is completely sick.
