    I have been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes for 11 years. I strongly suspect that I also have either CFS (which is more likely) or FMS. I have pain about a level 2 or 3 much of the time. It doesn't really hinder me much except for exercise. I have the energy of snail much of the time. I also have peripheral neuropathy in my feet and nerve damage in both arms and hands.

    I've done some research and the medications that they say may help, I'm already taking three of them so that may be why I'm not as dibilated as some. I have clinical depression and an anxiety disorder. I am morbidly obese and there was an incident where I was witness to a motorcycle accident and went to help. The diabetes was diagnosed 2-3 weeks later.

    The doctor did some blood work to see if I had CFS and it was inconclusive. I'm going to ask him to run them again. I have so many things that I am wrong there is a big cross-over of symptoms. Any ideas anyone.
