This is how my wife's whole day has been. 

Very, very few know, even fewer understand.

  2. There is knowledge from other diseases that could help us understand ME, and give us ideas for new research: "Hyperacusis in patients with complex regional pain syndrome related dystonia" http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2095603/ and this quote "The sensory abnormalities may include a sudden increase in sensitivity to light, noises, smells, tastes or textures of foods or items of clothing.." from "DOPAMINE (post-streptococcal) related autoimmune encephalitis" http://pandasnetwork.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Dopamine-related_autoimmune_encephalitis.pdf Helle Nielsen
