What are the main symptoms of you or your family member?

I feel like I have fishing line wrapped around various parts of my face that has been pulling tighter and tighter and tighter for the past 9 years. Pain is spreading to neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists; occasionally can be detected in pelvis, groin.

How long have you or the your family member been dealing with FMS/CFS?

9 years. Onset extremely gradual. Only prohibiting functionality the past 3.

What helps you to feel supported in coping with this illness?

Knowing what it is would be nice. Also some kind of relief. Pain is completely present at all times and the fact that it is constantly increasing in intensity is terrifying. Knowing that I am not dying would be nice. But with no formal diagnoses that covers all symptoms, it is hard to say.
