Comments from related studies:
From this study (8 months ago):
Started with flu-like symptoms 2.5 years ago and has progressed to exhaustion, fatigue. muscles feel like I have ran a marithon to walk minimal distance (like from couch to bathroom--arms and legs, falling asleep driving-even while talking on phone. Cannot concentrate to get work done. Feel ill. Altered time perception-used to be early for everything, now late. Hurt all over still in my joints. started hands and feet, then moved to hips, then all joints. seems to move at times from hands and feet to hips. if weather is bad--i hurt worse.
From this study (8 months ago):
I feel socially awkward and have low self esteem. I am unable to connect with other people. This was brought about the same time I started taking Vyvanse and Ritalin. I have been diagnosed with and treated for depression in the past.
From this study (12 months ago):
It almost feels like I have symptoms of MS or am having seizures (but not grand mal).I've been to the ER,Doctor,Neurologist, and have had every test imaginable and everything is negative
