Hi Bondman and Sister. I have scratched my head about whether I am in fact suffering from this also. I literally crawl out of bed every morning...but it IS painfully , slowly getting better!(CFS,as well as IBS) I have changed some things in my diet that has brought much releaf, but still have bouts. Sugar! and sugar subs. They are NO-NO'S!!!! I gave up diet cokes about 6 months now. I drink teas, with limited sugar also water with lemon and club soda with lime. The citris alone builds the immune system! I notice that when I injest sugary sweets or carbs, I hurt more than usual. Also I discovered that too much magnesium causes an aching sensation in me. What's happening is your body is attacting itself. The immune system is compromised. It can be a simple as food allergies. Hey, do you remember me from another site?
