: Possible to have both?
Leathan -- I have both PD and FMS, which is similar to CFS. Fortunately, the meds I take at night generally help me sleep really well. About 1-2 times per week, I wake up at 3:30, rather than the usual 6::00. So I get on this board, read the newest posting, revisit some of the older ones. I think the only way to differentiate/
diagnose both problems is via qualified physician's, etc. Movement Disorder ones for PD, possible rheumatologist for CFS? Witht the CFS do you have pain? the FMS is definitely painful. Hope others respond, this is an interesting direction. Lory
