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.

    It's funny knees and hips flaring are my warning signs I've done too much. I read somewhere or saw a poll that pain was more likely to be localised to the legs ...I remember wondering why this might be at the time. Perhaps it's POTs related?

    It may be. For me the other discomfort at night is my feet. That ache and make me want to move them about. Through chance I've discovered that I can get relief by washing them in cold water before bed. So it seems possibly a heat issue. <Blerg> so many stupid symptoms I never even wanted to know about let alone deal with.

    A very interesting post on reddit by a doctor with ME. He tried to post it in the doctors' subforum for other medics to read, but it was removed, sadly.

    every doctor should get ME for at least a couple of months, it'll do them a lot of good
