“Welcome” new people to the site (new to the site maybe but not new to the condition, right?!)
It’s unfortunate that this ‘condition’ which many of us suffer is all-embracing, this is referred to as ‘systemic’ in the medical world, i.e. something that affects systems throughout the body. It has an influence on many systems – the autonomic system, the nervous system, the gastric system, the circulatory system, the endocrine (think hormones) system, to name but a few.
The difficult trick, as you probably know, is to narrow down what’s ‘CAUSING’ the symptoms (whereas western medicine oftentimes just masks the symptoms). That’s why it’s so good to have Dr Diana, Dr Francomano, Dr Cheney, etc on our side, fighting our corner, trying to educate, research and address the root of the cause (or causes, as seems to be the case).
There are many helpful posts on this website, that you can find just by typing in your ‘area of concern/interest’ in the search box above. You’ll soon find that you are far from alone with this condition (reassuring enough in itself, I know).
Just a note about any links that you may find in the forums – they don’t work by clicking on them (you are just sent to a blank page) instead you have to copy them into the browser. I know not all are computer buffs, so for the benefit of any computer newbies (Copying: – first highlight the link, then press the ctrl button + the c button, to copy it, then mouse-click in your browser field, to make it active, then use ctrl+v, to paste the link).
