Hi, Im new to this chat but old timer to cfids. Have had it for 12 years, I could answer on most subjects concerning us. But I had this wonderful remission of 2 years!!!! I thought i was relatively healed(I still took meds and wasnt like a normal healthy person) but it felt normal and healthy compared to the hellish previous 10 years! The night I declined into the relapse, I was driving home from work(yeah, I could work!) and I had been feeling lousy for a couple days. As I was driving I felt like I was going to faint. Then a few moments later I KNEW I was going to faint. I was in a dangerous area of Atlanta and I managed to pull into a liquor store parking lot. I didnt even make it all the way out of the car. I came to flat on my back in the parking lot. The security guard called the ambulance. But just as freaky was that I didnt have the streghth to move a muscle for hours! Now, as I feel day to day like I used to, I cant move my arms or hands if I do too much. Needless to say I try not to get to that point. Anyone else out there have stories about fainting, paralysis-like weakness or relapses?
