Thank you, Cort!!! This is valuable information. Interestingly, my daughter ( a researcher) just interviewed at Brigham and Women’s - looks like she will be leaving her west coast Univ. position and going there. Has a large NIH Grant - using brain scans to look at women with chronic pelvic pain. Hmmm.

You did not get a lot of comments on this but I for one identify.....one of my symptoms is not exactly difficulty breathing, but more like impossible to breath deeply (like i used to in yoga for example). And when walking around/being active, this inability to breath deeply gets very uncomfortable....its almost a natural outcome of exertion to breathe more deeply so having difficulty doing that naturally does not feel good.

Nice! Very well may be overlaps between CPP and fibromyalgia and ME/CFS. Should be interesting! Good for her.

I too for years have had this difficulty in breathing deeply. It's like my body doesn't want to....
