International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day is May 12: The World Will Know
Did you know that May 12 belongs to us? Lots of us are aware of this. We share the buzz on it amongst ourselves. We add blue ribbons to profile pictures. We raise our voices, join our hands, mount the few podiums available to us and tug at the sleeve of the rest of the world.
Discuss the article on the Forums.

Thank God we have all those dentists on our side!

    Yes, my dentist has the "no epi" in his records. He gave it to me by mistake once. We both just sat around, waiting for my heart to stop pounding. Deep breathing, etc. doesn't do squat.

    @IreneF,
    Thank you. I was thinking it was something to do with my keywords.
    @Sushi
    Thank you. There's so much going on in Phoenix Rising that I'm still deciding as to where to begin from!!

    @Valentijn,

    Completely agree with you. I have not stopped reading about all these conditions after the article. That's what brought me here. :)

    Hi, Suma

    Would you mind telling us a little more about your change of mind? Why did it change and what do you now think?

    Thanks

    Oops! Sorry, Suma

    The exchange between you and Valentijn has just sunk in - it's been a hard day and my brain is sore.

    IreneF have you ever been diagnosed by a doctor literate in Ehlers Danlos Syndrome or Joint Hypermobility Syndrome?

    I don't mean to derail this thread, but if you read the med literature on EDS or just lurk on their forums, you'll find out that many people complain of TMD as well as having serious problems with anesthesia (in a dental setting).

    I've read about EDS and it doesn't seem to fit me, and my joints are anything but hypermobile. I have generally tight muscles.

    People with red hair also have problems with anesthesia.
