Maureen's gradual onset - and her gradual recovery

Name
Maureen
Diagnosis
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Disease Course Over Time
One day Maureen woke up ad couldn't get out of bed. She was 35 years old. She had been experiencing periodic exhaustion, rashes, painful joints,constant colds, insomnia and fatigue but this time she couldn't get out of bed - her body was broken. She had profound exhaustion and could barely stand.

Seven years earlier she had experienced something similar after a bad cold. That went away after she was given steroids about a year into her illness.

This time she eventually got a bit better, went on a little trip and was in bed for a month.

She began Dr. Teitelbaum's protocol. It took several months to see progress on it. First she was only able to walk ten feet on the beach but she slowly got better and over time became completely healthy.
