That dreaded sore throat and heavy head feeling has started. My 9 yr old daughter has a cold and my hubby was sneezing this morning.  I seriously asked them not to give it to me.  They're mean!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Help, how do I cope with this set-back?  My workload is too high to be on the sofa all day (I spend half the day on it all ready). Any suggestions please?x

      I did think of the test but the reports I read on the internet suggested you can't do anything with the information it gives you.  Guess you would say otherwise?

      I'm an ME/Fibro oldy (22yrs) although only diagnosed 2yrs ago.  I've just tried to cope. 6/7 different meds at the moment (no memory for which they are - hubby has to fill my med box for me).  Not sure I have a treatment plan as such?  Just trying to cope and have an every 3wk doctors appointment when we juggle the meds again.

      hi,

      you have this 22 years and you never got any relief? Where do you sit on the bell CFS scale? So you not actually sure what you are taking currently, thats pretty scary!

      I just received my mito results, in a few months time I'll see if the treatment plan was sucessful.

      Thought it was normal to feel like I did. My mum told me I had a bad back just like her.  Didn't know I should be questioning it until I'd had enough 2 yrs ago.  Did more internet research went to the doctor with my prognosis, he confirmed it and I've seen my specialists since.  You agree I have it and send me on my way.

      I don't know what a bell CFS scale is.  The CFS specialists rate me as 31/33 and pain 73/100.  Unfortunately over the last year I've got worse. Now a moderate / severe level I estimate.  Feedback on the progress of your treat ment plan would be great please.

    Immediately, if I feel something might hit me cold wise, I hit my body with Echineaca 2 caps every 2-3 hours for a day or so, this does it every time....I never let myself run out of Echineaca.....it's an herbal type antiobiotic....

    Grape Seed Extract which I've taken for 19 yrs keeps me from colds and flu etc....keeps my immune system strong.....
