Professor Graham didn't believe in M.E so I didn't push the subject - he said all my symptoms of fatigue and pain were down to the EDS. What's prolotherapy and Hyawhatsy? Not heard of them Sara x
I had prolotherapy in the ligaments around my knees and it helped moderately but hurt like hell! They inject sugar and lidocaine (as I remember). The sugar is just an irritant that makes the ligament respond by growing stronger. The Hyaroulonic Acid is a supplement. That one didn't help me. What helps me the most is pilates.
