Symptoms List

I thought I'd list all my symptoms here, so others can see, and also to provide a baseline for me to check back against later:

Headaches, blurry vision, dizziness, muffled hearing, balance problems, inability to remember words. poor memory,poor concentration, snuffles, tiredness, lack of stamina.
Muscle weakness, clumsiness, muscle twitching, aches in legs, poor body temperature control,, easily tired in company, by emotions, mild shocks like a slamming door - anything that provides an adrenaline rush.
Irritable bowel
Messed up sleep pattern
Slow to waken and/or react


  1. It's possibly silly of me to ask but have you tired hypnosis? I have a friend who suffered for quite a few years and she found, after some time, that it helped her gain much of her independence. Perhaps it was just a fluke but she believed it.

  2. I haven't, but I'm up for anything that helps. My first thought, however, is that hypnosis, like the NICE-preferred CBT approach, would only help with the ability to cope with ME, rather than have any effect on the ME itself.
