Covid Longhaulers Mirror CFS

Covid Longhaulers Mirror CFS

This is no surprise to those of us who had been watching the news and that is that post viral fatigue is affecting more women in general, more female covid longhaulers than men, and mimics CFS.

Any reflections and experiences would be welcome to hear!

This is a very sad development and yet many of us on this site predicted this would happen, given our correlations with post viral fatigue and fibromyalgia and now with a viral based pandemic.

Jaw Pain Help

Jaw Pain Help

Apparently now I have jaw pain on both sides of my jaw. As of about a month ago. This is new to me and I'm annoyed to have a new area of pain on my body to add to my neck and back.

Anyone found anything to help. It hurts at night no matter what my position.

I have thought about getting a moth guard to sleep in. I found some on amazon. I have teeth that need pulled so may talk to the oral surgeon about it.
