    Myotonia

    I have Myotonia or Myotonia Congenita. Americans say they think it sounds like Fibromyalgia (sp?) and UK people say they think it is like CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome sp?). Does anyone else have this? How do you deal with the fact that stress is one of the triggers?

    (Myotonia arising from channelopathies, and myotonic muscular dystrophy can be exacerbated by exposure to cold (and occasionally heat), by eating foods that are potassium-rich (such as bananas), with exertion, especially after long periods of inactivity, sudden surprises, and stressful situations.)

    If you know that stress is a trigger, your best bet would be to look for ways of minimizing the stress in your life where possible and learning better coping skills for managing the stress that can't be eliminated.
