I've read through the stickys and some of the old threads in this section, but I was wondering, does anyone have any tips on the best way to work out what my own baseline is? It seems like that's the most sensible first step to effective pacing, but I'm not entirely certain of exactly how to go about it. Thank you!

It's tedious, Rose, but the only way I know of is to do next to nothing until you feel reasonably okay. Then VERY SLOWLY add things, both physically and mentally until you feel not so okay, bearing in mind that symptoms often don't show up until a day or two AFTER you've crossed your line. That's you're starting point. Like I said, tedious, and lots of trial and error is involved. Maybe someone will come up with a better approach. Are you out there 'someone'?

Dr Myhills strategy is this :
Your base line is 80% of what you can achieve without symptoms....
