I'm wondering what the prevalence of seizure and tremor type symptoms is among board members. I would include inability to take stimulants because of tremor or other similar side effects. Perhaps you've had symptoms like this as a consequence of the side effects of prescription drugs. I pretty much couldn't take coffee anymore after the original virus because I would get terrible fits of shaking, which was bizarre at the time, but the cause was easily pinpointed and I just didn't take coffee or tea anymore. It took months for the symptoms to burn out in spite of that. I've also had problems with ventolin, and another drug whose name I don't recall. They caused quite violent jerking about, which went on for hours, usually starting about an hour after I fell asleep, so I was woken up by it. It was probably the worst symptom I've ever had. Throat muscles were affected by it as well as arms and legs and body, and god knows what was going on in my brain. It was horrible. Had to take diazepam in very tiny dose to take the edge off it, but if I took a larger dose, it would send me to sleep and then I'd start jerking again and be woken up. So I pretty much had to wait it out for about five hours (up to seven hours). It went on for years. Playstation also caused it. Another trigger was old style computer screens which used to flicker. I had to put a blue screen on top and wear dark glasses as well to try and keep it under control. It sometimes affected me during the day, but was definitely triggered after sleep started. I could always tell if I was in for it too, because I'd get a mild ache or pressure at the crown of my head a few hours before it started, before going to bed. If I didn't get that, I slept fine. It burned itself out in the end, but it took a long time. I do think the ME has something to do with it. I could drink tea and coffee before the original virus, and have no symptoms whatsoever. I had neurological symptoms right from the point of the virus.
