Just wondering if any one has heard of a relationship between people with M.E. going on to develop Parkisnons. I developed M.E. 25 years ago and was dx with PD 8 years ago. The limitations left by the ME are similar to some of PD - exhaution, mind fog, muscle ache etc but the tremor seems to be only linked with PD. ANyone else out there who has had similar illness?
Hi, Only that I have ES and my father had Parkinsons.
its not impossible both might be aspects of the same initial immune over-response to an infection, but thats one of my pet theories. no way of telling in an individual case.
eg a case of glandular fever might trigger ME and a much slower PD response.
