    My pem comes from physical exertion . Which sets off chains of events. But one of the worst, other than muscles giving out is the constant vertigo with eyes not always in focus. Over the past 22 years I thought I had beaten it. Several times. They were remissons. Which became shorter and more incomplete. The relapses have totally taken over.

    Why does my head feel soooo heavy.
