From the article: “New York City ME/CFS specialist Susan M. Levine, MD, also said she sees MCAS frequently. ‘I suspect 50% to 60% of ME/CFS patients have it. It’s a very new concept.'” (Mast cell activation also has been implicated in Lyme disease and fibromyalgia.)
In last week’s news post, I featured an Israeli study that found cannabis was effective for fibromyalgia. This week, there’s a study with an opposite finding. (In some ways, these studies are comparing apples and oranges, but I felt the Newsweek article is relevant since one of the primary symptoms of fibromyalgia is chronic nerve pain.)
Attention kratom users! Some brands of kratom are being recalled because they might be tainted with salmonella.
From the article: “One in 10 women of reproductive age suffers from endometriosis. The problem is, not all of them know it. Many of them haven’t even heard of it.”
From the article: “A number of big-name health care providers, including Johns Hopkins Medicine, Cedars-Sinai, Penn Medicine and UC San Diego Health, have already agreed to participate in the beta version of the program, and Apple says more are on the way.”
If you’ve been reading FedUpwithFatigue.com for a while, then you know I’m a big fan of the Quell pain relief device. (You can read my review here.) In celebration of National Sleep Awareness Week, I was happy to contribute a testimonial to the LivingQuell blog on how Quell helps to improve my sleep.
New YouTube video…
In this video, I share my recent Vitacost order of supplements, food items and personal care products.
I’m sorry I’ve been MIA on posting new articles the past couple of weeks. It’s felt like I’ve been dealing with one thing after another. The herniated disc in my back has been acting up, and that has led to a flare of Lyme/fibro symptoms as well. (Multiple snow/rain storms hasn’t helped!) I’ve also been shuttling a couple of sick kitties back and forth to the vet, and hubby has been nursing a cold. Amidst all of that, I’ve had a frustrating case of writer’s block. I did finally finish a blog post yesterday, so I will have a new article for you early next week.
