Does anyone know of a possible diagnosis, subject is 54 yr old caucasian male. No obvious medical conditions aside from persistent acid reflux, no injuries or hypertension, reasonable good health, normal weight and muscle skeletal. Negative for anaemia or hemochromatosis. Symptoms are transient body and mental fatigue, xsient inability to focus thoughts with slight mental confusion. Socializing is mostly non existent as a result of this. Sleep patterns are inconsistent but generally the subject does not wake up feeling well rested. Moderate intolerance to exercise has developed over the past 4 years. Any suggestions would be kindly appreciated as this condition is debilitating and is a possible career ending problem.

  • It sounds very similiar to CFS/M.EHave you seen a Doctor?Check out websites re CFS/M.E. Main symptoms (not all suffers have all of them) excessive tiredness, unfreshing sleep, sore throat, swollen lymph nodes, lack of concentration, slight memory loss, muscle and joint aches and pains and no energy.There are many other symptoms that overlap with CFS/M.E and they will have to be ruled out before a diagnosis can be made.I hope this helps a little, good luck!

  • Try going to a chiropractor. I had all of these symptoms. I am a 35 yr. old female in good health. The joint at the base of my skull was out, and it was slowing the circulation to my brain stem. He adjusted me, and by the next day I was feeling much better. (My doctor diagnosed me with depression.)
