Thank You! Very interesting article! Many things it talks about are what I experience.
Working with my PCP to get a heart monitor called I believe Hotler. We'll see what it comes up with.
As of last week I found a Daily Journal notebook that I can keep a record of how I am feeling all the time. I've modified it a bit to keep track of what I am eating, feeling and any medication I take. It's starting to so some interesting similarities in pain, fatigue and other things.
I've started to listen closer to my body! When it tells me I am on the edge, I walk aways from what I am doing and rest.
Thanks Will keep you posted!

@sundance6 Journaling your symptoms and issues helps in several ways. It allows you to see the patterns that develop, and understand what may work to ease discomfort. It also creates a visual reference for both you and your medical team to see what is happening over time [we cannot rely on our memory to tell us what was going on two weeks ago when you didn't feel well!]. Also, getting it down on paper helps clear your mind, at least it does for me. I keep it in line with my regular journaling, and often find there are correlations between what my symptoms are and what else may be going on in my life.

Here is a journaling discussion on Mayo Connect that you might find interesting: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/journaling-the-write-stuff-for-you/
