I'm hoping someone could help bacause my doctor keeps telling me it's caused by anxiety.
In Jan 07 i had bad glandular fever for 2 months i could hardly go anywhere and had to be carried to the shower etc, only stayed awake for about 5 hours a day, and for the other 2 months i was limited in what i could do as i would get extremely tired if i was out too long. My lymph lands at the sides of my neck swelled up and remained slightly swollen since. for about a year after that iv been okay until about the last few months, when my lymph glands swelled up again and my throat was sore. I went back to get anothet test for glandular fever which was negative. And now i fend it really hard to get up in the mornings. even after 13 ours sleep, my eyes just clamp shut again when i try to open them, and i always feel really dehydrated al the time. I'm worried i have some awful virus, as its too long after the glandular fever to have CFS isnt it???

  • Well, extreme tirdness can be many things...one thing that is very common is thryoid problems. Please get a thorough thryoid testing: FT3, FT4, TSH and the antibodies for Graves Disease and Hashimotos Disease autoimmune diseases of the thryoid. Thyroid can be tricky, but is often very treatable....get ALL the tests (not just TSH as docs sometimes say). Joan If you read this please acknowledge. ;)
