    Safe exercise for ME/CFS?

    I’m looking for a short (no more than 20 minutes) exercise program, preferably a video, that would be safe for ME/CFS. Can anyone recommend a program, maybe Pilates, yoga, or tai chi? I walk a slow mile a day but at 73 am losing muscle and feeling weak. I’d be grateful for any suggestions.

    Poll Has anyone been to Hunter Hopkins Center in NC?

    This website is from the clinic that Dr. Lapp left behind after he retired. It's in driving distance for me, but I will still have to stay in a hotel. So I'm thinking I should ask around and see what people think of it. I'll add a survey so if you're having a low energy day, you can just...

    How I put ME/CFS into remission....& even better

    Our stories leading up to ME/CFS and while battling it have some remarkable similarities. Yet due to subcategories of this illness, many of us fail to respond to treatments that work for others, and in fact some of us may get worse. The science behind ME/CFS is indeed still in it's infancy...

    Can I give blood?

    I was sat here thinking what I can actually do to help others. I've donated blood once before but that was before M.E/C.F.S. Does anyone know if I can still give blood? Also before M.E/C.F.S I had glandular fever. Does that mean I should never have given blood? I was never tested to see if...

    Blood Pressure issues

    I have been ill with ME/CFS for 8 1/2 years. In the last year and a half I have had blood pressure issues - both too high and too low. I just turned 65 (yikes!) and need to get some other "normal" aging issues addressed. I had a dermatologist treatment this week (non invasive) and my blood...

    Wearables - which ones do you like and why?

    Hello! I'm interested in tracking my symptoms better and would love to know which wearables people with ME/CFS/Fibro are using.

    One Gene Many Disorders: Genetic Finding Could Help Explain POTS, EDS, IBS, FM, ME/CFS and Others

    First, at least for me, there was chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) and fibromyalgia (FM). Then I learned about irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), then POTS and in the last five years Ehler’s-Danlos (EDS) and Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS).
