Im nearly 40 and have suffered alone with this condition - the only description I call it is chronic fatigue. Only recently I got the G.P to refer me to the Chronic Fatigue service in Leeds, U.K for assessment but the shrink reckons i dont have C.F.S/M.E. I didnt think I did as the precursor seems to be normal health - viral infection - C.F.S/M.E. My symptoms have been with me for as far back as I can remember into childhood: Chronic Fatigue, Memory,poor concentration, lack of energy for exercise, and over the years total lack of sex drive, chronic weight gain and joint and muscle problems. With this is the usual barage of phsycological problems that go with these symptoms. Its having to cope with the long periods of unemployment, lack of social skills and friends and a partner which doesnt make me anamoured of life at all. All you get from the medical profession is "we doctors dont have all the answers" which seems to me to be a cop out!!!. Is anyone else out there suffering similarly that could throw some light on my predicament?. Anyone know of any research programs here in the U.K specifically for chronic fatigue symptoms not necesarilly C.F.S/M.E - I would be obliged for any feedback - thanks - ChrisReply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
