So, here I am looking over some of what the rest of you have experienced during a "crash" period, and it seems to sum it up pretty well. I have been able to exercise pretty well with FMS over the past few years, and it actually has made me feel much better. So, I hadn't been feeling well, and went to the Dr., and he did some tests, and I have active EBV, and my spleen is slightly swollen, which the pain from that along with unusual fatigue is what sent me there. But, I thought, hey, why not get out and ride my bike, it was such a BEAUTIFUL warm, sunny day. The next day I was so nauseated I could hardly keep from vomiting, I am still exhausted 48 hrs later, although it has subsided some, but I also got a horrible headache in the front that I have never experienced before. We tried to watch a movie last night at home, and the FBI warnings are on unusually bright backgrounds, and I couldn't even look at them- it made me want to scream! So, is this what it's like??? Is this the rest of my future?? I had the FMS pretty well under control for the past few years. I've never had anything hit me like this. I am hoping to improve on this. What helps?
