In my many years of having this condition, I have found it to be related to Mono, herpes and CFS (no need to rule this out) and have no symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis (Question 6 which must be ruled out). As elusive as this problem is, it is hard to make a quiz that contains much truth as the syndrome itself is mostly subjective. The only objective tests presented during a flare-up have validity. There is only pain relief and sympathy that do very much good. Exercise sometimes creates a flare that lasts longer than the exercise time, as a day or part of each day working out, walking and even gentle stretching can reach intolerable pain levels in a very short time. These seem to take a few days in bed and higher doses of pain medicine to reach pre exercise stages. Your opinions? Thanks~
