hello, i'm a 26 year old male. In 2005 i was struck down by a mistereous illness. Fatigue that lasted over a year, twitches and muscle spasms, enlarged lymph nodes, euphoria, muscle and joint pain, extreme lower and upper back pain, ibs, sensitivity to sound and light, stiff joints, to name a few. I was diagnosed with cfs/me. This year, although i am back at work and many symptoms i have learn't to live with, there are some that are still a problem, my back pain, rock hard lymph nodes, twitching and spasms and stiff joints. New symptoms are appearing, extreme mood changing (bipolar) erectile disfunction, inflamed optical nerve, night blindness, everything sounds the same volume, hard to pick out voices or specific sounds. Weight loss, and dissociation feeling to world. Is this all part of cfs or should i just ignore it all. I come from a family of narcissists and know i have developed health anxiety. I'm sacred to go to my gp anymore because although i've had legitimate symptoms and signs i appear to be paranoid of getting ill. Which is not the case, i just want to get on with life, without being dragged down by ill health. I want it sorted. Please help. Regards. Ps, please excuse my lack of paragraphs, i am using my phone and it doesn't at have that function for some reason.
