Hey, I'm 19 and I've been ill for almost 6 years and I'm now very desperately trying to get over it as it is running my life. I have been diagnosed with CFS but I'm not even sure if it really is that. 6 years ago I got my first migraine and ever since then I have not once felt good/normal. I'm not very good at describing how I feel but I'm going to try write down some symptoms, regardless of whether they are related to the main problem. It's been so long though I can't remember what normal feels like

Malaise - Main symptom is this, just not feeling right, feeling ill

Brain fog/concentration - Another main sympton

Fatigued - I feel quite drained but don't really have any bad muscle pain. I don't get too drained from walking but working out muscles brings me quite down

Fast exercising heart rate - Resting it's fairly normal, ranges 55-90 and I have low blood pressure, but exercising it goes up to 190 when I run. Doctor doesn't think this is any problem though

Trouble speaking clearly/enunciating words 95% of time - Not sure what this is. There's definitely a bit of tightness/soreness or something in my throat. Might be to do with my tongue though because I can't articulate words and sound muffled most the time

Can't gain weight / feel hungry all the time - I eat quite a lot and don't gain weight. Doctor reckons its just my age though

I have taken many blood tests over the years and everything always comes back fine. My thyroid is fine. Also Im a bit gluten intolerant and dont eat gluten

There are more minor symptoms I have that I haven't described or can't think about at the moment too

Thanks for looking
