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.

    Hi all,

    Anyone have symptoms that are predominantly pain related rather then fatigue?

    My symptoms are mostly pain and swelling related on my left side including brain fog, vision issues, sore neck and shoulder, lower back, leg, arthritic symptoms in hands. Feels like my lymphs are slightly swollen putting pressure on everything else. Symptoms are more like fibromyalgia than cfs.

    I don't have any flu like symptoms and I have reasonable amounts of energy but have chronic tenderness / swelling across one side of my body.

    Doc has ruled out lyme but suspects ebv after positive blood test. Trying to get a sense of what most folk experience as been dealing with this for 10 + years

    Anyone with chronic ebv have similar symptoms without the traditional "sick' symptoms like flu and fatigue?

    Many thanks
