Hey All - first time on this site. Been going thru very similar symptoms for over 20 years. got hit with this when I was going thru starting up a business, stress, strain and just AAA personality put me over the edge. hit me one day like a ton of bricks. I slugged thru a whole year of this and kept a business going. went thru just about every test, procedure like alot of you.
I was told epstein- barr, chronic fatigue, depression blahblah ,,,,,,,,,,,
so why do I feel like this ALL the time ??? I get bouts of this kind of like an attack. when I over do it or push my self, I get hit real hard with this. Its been about 6 weeks into my latest bout. had a real bad bout in 2006 when I moved my daughter into college on a 95 degree day. that one lasted about 4 months. even when the bouts end, still have the brain fog, lo grain headaches, dizziness, trouble sleeping, et al. I will say that I am 55 and I am learning that I am not in my 20's anymore - which is a hard lesson for me to learn. I have to slow down and live differently. as part of all this, i changed my diet years ago. eating healthy and doing moderate exercise, like walks and riding a bike, but NO MORE rambo stuff !!!! just went thru a bunch of blood tests for new stuff with a PA I know. everything comes back negative, except hi levels of potassium. .... wow, nothing on that. still no cure or diagnosis on this. I have learned to live with this thing and trust the Lord day to day. I am kind of a downer with friends and family cause I go to bed early every night. the one thing that helps the most for me is a good night sleep. so that is what I try to do. for now, keep looking and dont give up hope for for figuring this thing out.
