    Oh initially I regained some but now I'm back to just above this. I can react to things, but actively thinking is extremely difficult. I can read texts but unless I am familiar with the topic it's very hard. I find it easier to read Tuller's posts, for example, since I'm familiar with the background information. Otherwise I rarely read anything more than a page at a time, aside from novels.

    I haven't seen mentions of tremors in the media yet, only from patient reports. It's definitely in the lesser frequent symptoms so it goes unnoticed, or labeled as anxiety, but I've seen enough to be pretty sure it's one of the usual symptoms that only a % will develop, extrapolating from the size of the samples I am reading from.

    Still lots of rib pain, unfortunately, but since it's hard to feel depth, initially it was more of a worry about heart problems. All checked and good. It's still annoying but I just endure it, like all the other annoying but harmless symptoms.

    @rvallee Well you come across as fiercely intelligent in reacting mode. I have the same difficulties. I can fire off a letter or a text in response to something, particularly a rebuttal, but actively thinking, independently, as I used to, actually hurts.

    It must use up too much energy. It's a strain to push my brain that way, when it used to be exhilarating.

    Ah, of course they'd label the tremors as anxiety. :banghead: I'm concerned the neurologist will see depression on my notes and do the same. I've had anxiety tremors. This is definitely not that. But doctors don't listen to patients' subjective experience because we're unreliable narrators.

    Ongoing rib pain can't be easy to ignore. I hope you manage to sleep with it - and all the other damn ME symptoms.
