Hi, I am new to the site and looking for people who understand CFS and fibromyalgia. It is at its very worst since I was diagnosed about a year ago. Although, I think I have had it about 5-6 years. I have a lot of pain in my neck, shoulders, and upper arms and tender feet. I also have breathing problems, I don't know if it is all anxiety or part of the sickness. The breathing problems are bad esp. at night when I am drifting off to sleep, I will wake up gasping for air. I take Xanax, but do not want to be on it long term, just started Zoloft again yesterday. Thanks for listening, anyone with similar breathing issues? I just want to be a normal "stay at home Mom" again! Some people just don't understand this illness like I am sure most of you do, it is exhausting! Oh, I started physical therapy today, does that help? Thanks again!
