Tracking My Health?

Q: I need a diary/graphing software to track what's working, or not working. I'm working seven days a week, and taking quite a few meds to get through it. I would like to somehow make a journal and try to figure out which things are working for me. I would like to be able to track meds, diet, sleep, exercise, stress and so on, and be able to see on a graph how these things relate to how I am feeling. Does anyone know if there is software available that can do this? - Deb

A: One of our message board members (irox) suggested using either the tools on sparkpeople.com or My Health Trackers on Prevention.com. Although at first glance, they appear to focus mostly on diet and fitness goals, both sets of tools claim to give you the option of tracking whatever you want as well as making graphs from your data. You do have to register to use the tools on either site, but there is no charge.

ME/CFS without FM?

Q: Could you have CFS with no fibro? I am not in chronic pain. I do sometime get the tender spots but not constant pain or aches. Just curious. - mindyandy

A: Yes, you definitely can have just ME/CFS without also having fibromyalgia and vice versa. Although an estimated 70 percent of people who have one also have the other, that leaves 30 percent who have pure cases of either ME/CFS or FM.

Should I Get a Flu Shot?

Q: ...I have not had a flu vaccine since 1997 and I been refusing it every year since. Should I get the vaccination or should I pass again this year? I am so scared to get it because of the antibodies. I have a fear of getting the flu-like symptoms after the antibodies began to work. When I got the vaccine in 1997 I was so sick. I just don't want the same reaction again. – charming

A: That's a difficult question to answer. Even ME/CFS medical professionals disagree on the answer. You can read: “The Flu Shot Dilemma – And Things to Know” ( http://www.prohealth.com//library/showArticle.cfm?libid=13292) for more information about the pros and cons of the flu shot for ME/CFS patients. In the end, though, only you can weigh the risks and benefits for yourself.

How to Describe My Fatigue?

Q: How can I explain the extreme fatigue I feel to my friends and family in a way they can understand?

A: One favorite explanation that has been shared for years on the ProHealth message boards and many others is “The Spoon Theory.” Though it is usually posted without attribution, it was written in 2003 by Christine Miserandino. To read and print out a pdf of this memorable explanation with Christine’s byline, click here.

Where Is the New Site?

Q: Where is the new site, can you tell me? - Marcia

A: You'll find our new Web site at http://www.prohealth.com

The old ImmuneSupport.com site is supposed to come down sometime this month. Once it's gone, if you try to go to the old site, you will be automatically redirected to the new site. When the exact date ImmuneSupport.com will come down is determined, it will be posted on this message board thread: http://www.prohealth.com/me-cfs/blog/boardDetail.cfm?id=1315506
