    Following a bout of flu, left with crippling pain in left foot and right shoulder. Flu gone but pain remains Can't get out of bed. Anyone familiar with this, and have an idea how to speed recovery? Thanks

    I don't want to alarm you, but this is how my CFS/FMS started 12 years ago.

    Love, Mikie

    I just wanted to welcome you!
    I beleive it was in 1992-I got a bad case of strep throat.(I waited a good week or more before giving in and seeing a dr!stupid!)Anyway,I was put on antibiotics for 10 days,and still did'nt feel back to normal.I went back to the drs.....was told that I had a staph infection.So I was given more antibiotics!!! Basically I have never felt the same.I never got better~(yeah 10 years of this!!)
    Please follow your instincts and ask to see a Rheumatologist.I hope you find some answers.Best of luck to you~
