    Am I being silly?!

    Hi folks. I have been experiencing various symptoms for a long time now and am one step away from a diagnosis of M.E. I have seen a neurologist, rheumatologist and M.E. specialist.

    Wondering if I have Fibromyalgia

    Thanks a lot for your help. Yeah, I have been thinking about going to one. Because the other thing that I have wondered if I may have is fibromyalgia. I seem to have pain on all the points that are required and what not. Also, I noticed that Fibro and Sleep Apnea usually seem to go hand in...

    Re: A few major concerns

    Re: A few major concerns Does anyone here know, from their journey to diagnosis--if atrophy is possible with MS? I keep thinking that if I had ALS, I'd be worse than I am after a year of atrophy in my hands. Is that a valid assumption? I know the neurosurgeon was concerned--but do EMG/NCVs...

    B-12 and fibro

    Hi welcome to the forum. You mention your husband is taking B-12 shots, was his B-12 pretty low? I do not have ALS, but have pernicious anemia (a chronic B-12 deficiency caused by not being able to properly absorb B-12 from food.). It can cause fatigue, cramping, muscle twitching, weird...
