Added A Paragraph Of Which Symptoms Worsen And The 24-72 Hour Delay. I Have PEM But Charts And Graphs Don't Tell Me What I "Feel" And When It Happens and I don't even know, from an average patient and general public reader point of view, what PEM is. Although these are not studies relating this information on the symptoms and the 24-72 hour delay (there may be and they may be in the charts and posted in the page somewhere) the average reader won't come away with much of an understanding if a short blurb is not included as to what it feels like and patient reporting on the worsening symptoms and when. Since it is "the marker" and "core symptom" little understood by patients, caretakers, the medical field, etc., I thought it best to include a brief explanation. I also included a new post under "Learn More" as i feel this page correctly and succinctly defines PEM.
I have moved two citations not used in prior text from the references section to here. If you can figure out where in the article these citations should be used, please move them back.--Samsara (talk) 08:42, 7 November 2016 (PST)
