Hi All I have only placed a few posts but I am grateful for all the replies, I was diagnosed with ME quite a few months ago. My symptoms are from the neck up only, pain in neck glands, ear ache, head pain, I suffer no other symptoms, if I go over my energy level the symptoms manifest. My doctor informed to pace myself etc, He also made two points which I have noted, one he informed me my body is constantly in the fight or flight Mechanism so I will not catch any cold, cough flu, which I haven't for 14 months, also he said forget supplements, If your eating a balance diet I was spending £80.00 a month on, He said you will be just Peeing them out? I stopped 4 months ago and seen no negitive response, Lasily more recently he told me to incorporate deep breathing exercises From Which I have seen a disappearce of symptoms for a few hours every single time I do them. If I don't do them I can feel my symptoms returning, can anyone explain this or does anyone else find relieve whilst doing this.
