Just happened to find this website - interesting. I have been going thru alot of this for about 20 years. Mine started with an episode on a hot summer day and alot of exertion. this thing hit me and by the end of the day I was a mess. went to bed hoping to feel better. that went on for 6 months - no change. I had the foggy head, low grain headaches, trouble concentrating, nervousness/anxiety, could not sleep, massive fatigue, alot of intestinal bloating and discomfort and head congestion. (Now I do get the neck nerve thing but I also attribute that to age, I'm 55 now) started eating better and that helped a bit. then hit all the Drs. tested for everything. Barr-Epstein virus was a new thing and that was how I was labeled. that turned into chronic fatigue and fibro. the whole time I was running my own business and raising a young family. hopelessness was setting in. finally found a homeopathic Dr that helped alot. his advice was the need to work with this illness and cope with it. over time symptoms improved but i get a relapse 2-3 times per year. triggering factors for me include: heat, allergies, stress and strain. The worst thing is I cant work out or exercise too much - if I do, I get hit with this thing and I pay for it! I do take walks and bit of swimming but NO hitting the gym. now I dont go to the drs anymore cause they cant help. the tuff thing is the family trying to work with me on this. my girls are getting a new apartment and I need to help them move on. its July and I am dreading it. I pray the Lord will help me thru that event. anyways, there are alot of you out there. looks like no definitive on this one. right now it is cope, pray and live a carefully designed lifestyle.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
