In Their Own Words: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia Patients Describe Their Symptoms – Part 2

Editor’s Note: Do you sometimes find the symptoms of fibromyalgia and ME/CFS overwhelming?  At times, it’s difficult to distinguish between a fibro or ME/CFS symptom and something else. This is Part 2 of patients describing their symptoms from Health Rising Forums.  You can find Part 1 here [1].
Friendly reminder:  always check new issues with your physician to make sure they are not a sign of a different illness.
