    I have seen numerous surveys in the past but if this question was asked, I don't remember. I know we are all similar but I want to know how similar. This disease has many symptoms and they come & go. I'm going to do 2 lists...One that I'm currently experiencing and in the order of how they are affecting me and the 2nd list of symptoms that are better at the present time but still appear from time to time or are being controlled by meds.

    PLEASE JOIN ME AND LET'S SEE HOW WE ARE ALIKE!!!

    2. Memory Problems

    3. Pain (all over body pain)

    6. Irritable Bowel/Constipation/Bloating/Pain/Spasms

    I think all of these. I hardly use meds, so cannot answer the med thing, so pain lasts more than 30mins period.
    Gotta go

    Our new oven door just fell off, gee, anyone know how to fix it?

    Oh gosh I feel bad for posting b/c my symptoms are low. I think I had a lot more last year when I first came down with it..in fgact I know I did but now I am doing better then before but still can't work or plan and I spend my days indoors with the tv and computer.

    1. Fevers-my biggest problem-up to 101 during fever cycles and in the middle of the month now it seems.

    2. Fever and flu like cycles-every month I feel like I get the flu-aches and chill and all then it goes away after 10 days.

    3. Fatigue

    4. Short term memory problems

    5. Always word searching-can't remember names or places

    6. Insomnia -constant waking through the night and early morning. It is hard to fall back asleep. Working on this now with Lunesta.

    7. Muscle weakness

    8. Musle pain when I do too much-like walking or stretching

    9. white coated tongue I guess from candidas..weird mouth

    10. If I have my fevers then I can't stand loud noises and sounds. I am not sure if I could go to a movie theater.

    11. Headaches after doing too much (usually 4 hrs.)

    12. I have always had Gerd issues but new diet is helping.


    Hopefully my list continues to shrink. I think if I could knock out the fevers my fatigue would be better...if only my wishes came true!
