Hi I just found this forum and wanted to say hello. I was diagnosed in 1992. I had an excellent doctor who seemed to know just what he was looking for and at, so I didn't have to suffer as a lot have done, with incredulous members of the medical profession. We moved from England to the USA in 1994 where I found another good doctor, although he thought CFS was FMS until he realised that it is that plus some! He tried everything he could think of, including sending me to someone doing Florinef trials. That "worked" for about three months, then I began to get worse until I was skin and bone and began to have convulsions. The Florinef doc. blamed me, saying I must have been over-exerting. My own doc. took me off that drug and we were back to square one. In 1996, I had a sudden and dramatic improvement and was fairly well until the last three months. Now I have experienced a crash ... quite majorly. The muscle pain is incredible and, for the first time in all these years, I am finding myself feeling quite alone with it and depressed about it. Amazing. It didn't get me this way the first time around, but I guess I am just scared of ending up back in that wheelchair after a few years of blessed liberation. I know many of you are suffering a lot worse than I am, but thanks for listening ... and thanks for having such a wonderful forum.
