I have ME (was diagnosed 20+ years ago). I'm feeling poorly today. I've been poorly all week. I am SO tired, my brain fog is terrible. I have cold / flu symptoms. My joints are achy and my skin hurts. All my skin. I'm struggling to manage work this week and have been doing shorter days (work from home). I have a cleaner (does beds and laundry), gardener, dog walker and a very helpful 10 year old. I am still struggling and I hate hate hate it. I just want to roll in my duvet and sleep until I feel better.

Oh that sounds so rubbish. Does a bath help you? I’ve got ms and get bad nerve pain and a hot bath really helps with the pain.

Hi that does sound rubbish. How long does a flare last with you above the day to day pain? Have you taken all pain killers you can? I get the skin sunburnt sore feeling there is no relief is there. Flowers
