Chris,

I've been thinking about the old "Symptoms not Found" thread we started last year. I think it would be helpful to start a new thread that regulars, newcomers, and lurkers might find useful when checking for symptoms that other people experience. Maybe there are even clusters of certain symptoms. THAT would be intersting to look at. I know Friend in KY was doing this on his website.

Here are a few thoughts about it...narratives/stories should not be posted...just a straight-forward listing of symptoms.

example:
1. bone pain
2. chest/rib pain
3. pain in the lower back
4. migraine
5. neck pain
and so on......

Telling stories ought to be done in regular posts. That's an important part of sharing our illness/changes that AS has brought to our lives. I had no idea that other people suffer from bone pain. It was a completely new symptom for me. I think such a post would be helpful.

Is this doable??????

Thanks,
Elaine
