I have cfs for 3 years now and been getting worse unfortunately... I've suffered a lot with fitting into the cfs definition of all the symptoms listed on the CDC but I know everyone is different. I knock on wood only have devastating fatigue and short term memory issues. I now am starting to get real crashes where I feel paralyzed for days...can't even support my body weight. I was curious if anyone could comment about if they are like me or know anyone similar to me... I obviously am thankful i don't have fevers, flu like symptoms, and pain but it also leaves me feeling even more ostracized.
