    •  Neuropathy and Fatigue.
    • Either the pain, depression/isolation, or fatigue
    •  My brian will never work the same, have to ask lots off questions, because I can’t follow anymore, or mutitask, or I go crazy if thete is too much noise, and I can’t follow anything. I feel like my 93 year old Granddad at 42. I forget what I’m saying or doing, and it takes so much longer to do things.
    • Brain fog too…memory issues hinder me a lot
    • seizures and fatigue
    •  Seizures (because they are so very scary and have taken my independence), the heart related stuff too. Fatigue (because it makes me unable to do anything physically speaking, even walking to the bathroom sometimes), severe brain fog that has not only wiped out my short term memory, but my long term memories also! I used to play so many songs on the piano, literally hundreds, by memory. Now I struggle to remember just one.  That’s on the very rare occasion I even have enough energy to play.
    •  Oh, Debbie, I know what you mean – no matter how many times I play a song on the piano, I cannot memorize it anymore! It’s as if muscle memory has gone, as well as ‘brain’ memory.
    • Exhaustion and digestive issues.
    • Fatigue and severe pain
    •  fatigue and pain with twitching all together
    •  Fatigue & joint pain
    • Pain but the neuropathy is causing my muscles to waste away so very weak and lots of pain from it all….they say I will end up in a wheelchair next if it doesn’t stop and then not able to care for myself…
    •  Joint pain, fatigue, gastrointestinal issues
    •  Yes, Janet! That’s exactly what it’s like! It’s so very frustrating and sad.
    •  Fatigue and pain… Im happy to say the one area I have made progress in during treatment is neurological issues. I still struggle when Im over tired or stressed but I’ve seen significant improvement.
    •  CFS ,pain and panic attacks
    •  Pain
    • The one you are dealing with at each given moment?????? For me, it was the loss of usage of arms and legs, the tremors and the pain….but as I said, then you get whacked with anther and taking one day at a time meant getting over that particular symptom for the day. It changes so darn much.
