Rowe-2013 by Cort Johnson | Jul 6, 2014 | | 1 comment Dr. Peter Rowe runs the Chronic Fatigue Clinic at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center Print PDF 1 Comment Julie Saunders on July 10, 2014 at 6:04 am Ah! Now I have a much better understanding of what has been going on with me concerning my FM and CFS thanks to Dr. Peter Rowe and his information on neuromuscular disorders. I had been suffering from FM for 24 years. This started during my last pregnancy which was the only difficult one of four. The reason being: I had lost one of a set of twins early on but continued to carry the water sack. this continued to grow under my son and made taking deep breaths very difficult. I have always had low blood pressure and understood early on in life, despite my talents in track and field as well as gymnastics I was unable to stretch as much as other young people. In reading Dr. Rowes articles further, this seems to be the perfect recipe for the onset of chronic fatigue and or FM. I have written to you that I started Vyvanse a few months ago and all symptoms have stopped. Amazed and undescribably happy as I am, I have been reading as much of these articles as I can find (reading again is such a joy), in order to find answers as well as guarantee my continued good health. Dr. Rowe mentions giving patients with injuries and such several different medications before starting their therapy. It seems to me Vyvanse produces much of the same results as some of these medicines mentioned in his article. I would like to know if Vyvanse is being used as a treatment for others with FM and CFS in any studies. If so, how effective has it been for others and does it continue to work for them over long periods of time? I have also, coincidently enough, just started stretching exercises for the first time ever. Dr. Rowe talks about stretching muscles and nerves to improve orthostatic intolerance. I would like to know more about which stretches, exercise and therapies are the most beneficial for FM and CFS. Finally, I would like to thank Dr. Rowe for his most excellent and important work in this area. Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
