: 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
thanks for reply Lory... Pain is due to stiffness I think - but i get a bad internal pain when i overdo things.-- this is my point though - u say you have FMS - i know that that basically is identical to PD - DO you get post exertional fatigue - that is fatigue of an overwhelming nature when you do something mental/physical.
also i get thought block , notice fingers twitching , get confused when driving - just block - with the steering when reversing - tremor - right hand and body tremor worsens with stress
