Wow, you've been even worse than we thought! Having a dog is a good thing - will push you more than you'd push yourself.

walking is very good for oxygen levels in the lungs, very healing but its not so nice if you feel too tired to walk, I guess you need to balance pushing yourself and knowing when to rest. But just being outside in bright light is good for seratonin levels. good luck. Very Happy

I am fine with fatigue and oxygen is all good. Pain is my problem at the moment but working through as I said.

People have beaten far tougher things than this!!

I want to ask all these questions that may be too nosy. But you've been an uncomplaining trooper for a year and deserve your privacy. I just hope the improvement speeds up.

I think we are friends Lance, even if we have never met in the flesh. Nod

Since you mentioned walking the dog, is it joint pain? is typical aspirin/ibuprofen ineffective?

If it is joint pain or temporary Arthritis , Glucosamine and Tumeric tablets are perfect for those symptoms.

My official diagnosis is Fibromyalgia although it is not a helpful one and doesn't really get anyone anywhere. Fibro is like ME but the main issue is pain rather than fatigue.

Basically, my brain has decided that it needs to protect me by stopping from doing anything. It tries fatigue, brain fog and some other fun stuff but mainly lots of pain. There is nothing actually wrong anywhere though.

Since pain is an output of the brain (not an input from the nervous system) it is that output I am trying to tackle by giving my brain new inputs (odd exercises, cold showers, pain related inputs) to basically teach it how strong is and that pain doesn't need to be a default output.

Arg, that's a tough one! Not understood, different pain pathways than most drugs treat...is the retraining your brain your own approach or expert guided?

Not that there are many experts out there for this thing...

Expert guided. People that have already been through it themselves for different reasons.

Pain is very misunderstood so not too many experts.
