  • They seem to have tried hard here to include all the CFS symptoms. Much better than a lot of other places. mommycat.. in regards to the title of this thread. "Chronic Fatigue according to wrongdiagnosis" Do you realise that Chronic Fatigue.. isnt in fact chronic fatigue syndrome???? They are two entirely different medical problems.. there is chronic fatigue and there is chronic fatigue syndrome. I decided to comment as it seems people often get confused between the two and that needs clearing up, the title on this thread may confuse some people further................................... What ive found interesting is that if i type in the symptoms I get with the CFS.. this site dont end up coming up with any answer for my medical problem. I assume this is happening to many others with CFS too, as all our symptoms on here aint recognised as CFS even some which are quite common in more severe ones with this (iabout 25% who fit into severe catagory). eg.. if i type one of my more major CFS symptoms in eg I have POTS (postural tachycardia syndrome) as many with CFS do as a result of the CFS (orthostatic intolerance is a very normal problem for CFSers to have), so if i type in the symptom/sign of "fainting". It unfortunately discludes CFS out of the possible diseases based on the selected symptoms!!! :eek: (thou i know I have CFS, medically diagnosed many times over and this is a symptom which severe CFS people get). So hence thou this site is good, there is still MUCH it needs to include in the symptom diagnosis part before ones with CFS who come here to look up their symptoms, find that it comes up with an answer for them. Mommy cat.. does this site actually come up with CFS for you when you go and post all your CFS symptoms in?? or for you too, does CFS not come up as all the symptoms for this aint currently in their system

  • Following is a list of causes or underlying conditions (see also Misdiagnosis of underlying causes of Orthostatic hypotension) that could possibly cause Orthostatic hypotension includes:DysautonomiaDehydrationProlonged bed restAddison's diseaseAtherosclerosisDiabetesShy-Drager syndromeSee also underlying causes of hypotension I have a request to the owner or the ones who run this site. Can CFS be added to that list. It REALLY should be there. This problem is common in ones with CFS and even if we aint doing the "bed rest" thing, we still often suffer from this problem. Also I sought your site everywhere for POTS (postural tachycardia syndrome) ..only to find that it isnt mentioned anywhere at all on this site. This is another common problem for CFS people and another "sign" (not just a symptom) of our condition.http://www.nymc.edu/fhp/centers/syncope/POTS.htm oh and can fainting be added to the CFS symptoms please.

  • oh i have to correct what i said as I ended up finding POTS in the "symptom" medical dictionary of this site.. but it wasnt linked with CFS at all and one wont find it if one looking at a list of diseases here as it isnt listed on that.. i guess i'll learn how to find my way better about this site some day.
