Comfort.
Having had a tough couple of weeks I saw an ex-collegue of mine today.  Colin and I trained together as osteopaths, although after graduation he specialised in cranial treatments, so works froma  different angle than I did ... and works on more holistic treatments.

Anyway, I had been having bad headaches as well as an increase in muscle tension and tiredness, so hoped even if he didn't have any long-term help he could ease the headache.

Anyway he has given me real hope ... he said that as I have had repetative respiratory infections, before this virus ... and the virus started with 2 infections then he would look at that.  He said as my chest muscles were so, so tight trying to get my ribs working, then I was getting the headaches.  Also that is why I am tired +++ ... because I am having poor breathing I am "running on adrenaline", so tire rapidly.

So I had a treatment, and go back ina  month.  Timing is bad as he is semi-retired, but there again, it needs to be slow steady release of the tension.

I hope you are feeling better soon. *hugs* I've been away for so long, that I've missed out on a lot. From your tags... did they diagnose you with CFS?

*hugs* - good to see you, hope all is OK

Yes, I was first ill with a virus a year ago, and it has not gone. So I am coming under a CFS diagnosis ... which is frustrating (to see the least)

It's hard not being able to do much at all - after always being a busy person.

I know EXACTLY how you feel!
I'll be spending more time on LJ again. I've always liked this site best. A lot of my friends here have gone inactive in my time away though. That saddens me. :( I may have to find some new ones!

I am glad you have found someone who may be able to help! Fingers crossed things are starting to look up! :)

It's certainly great to have an explanation for the extreme pain and tiredness ... and, no headache ... a real plus!

How good that you have found someone who is really helping - and that it is someone you know is even better.

Funny how the years rolled back to college days as well.

Sounds logical, that the muscles working too much makes you tired. Hope that you ex-collegue can help with his treatment. *fingers crossed*

Holistic treatment works well for me too. Hopefully this will get you on the track to feeling better!

It's certainly great to have an explanation for the extreme pain and tiredness ... that seems to be a real help in itself.

That is such good news Deborah, something that can be done to alleviate your symptoms, and get you feeling more like yourself. *fingers crossed* that further sessions will help with the muscle relaxation and get you breathing properly again. *hugs*
