NEW STUDY! Parasym Plus™ for Multiple Sclerosis › Forums › PrettyIll.com Discussion › EDS/MS/Chiari › Chronic Fatigue/M.E. patients! Can you please help us by sending us results of this symptoms checklist?
Hello, my brothers and sisters with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/M.E.! Can you help us identify underlying causes of this dreaded disorder by completing a symptoms checklist? We will publish the results to help us spread the word that CFS/ME involves much more than fatigue! This list is also useful to share with your doctors and disability companies. It can be found here: http://prettyill.com/resources/studies Thank you, and gentle hugs to you all.
Hi Dr Diana
Does that exclude those who have filled in the symptoms checklist previously, or has this checklist been tweaked specifically for CFS/ME and therefore does need completing again, for those with fatigue?
This checklist is for folks with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome who do not (necessarily) have EDS. Thanks so much for asking, Barb! 😉
NY diagnosed non-EDS, as I only scored low (2) on the ‘Beighton Scale’.
London however diagnosed EDS III, due to the newer ‘Brighton Scale’ including autonomic symptoms. I’m rambling aren’t I?
I will complete the checklist, when I can though because the fatigue, though improved, is still very limiting!
