I have been ill for 16 years, having been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue. However, beginning 5 years ago, I began getting infections and am now to the point where I am sick with a virus every week. My symptoms are severe head congestion, sneezing, burning in my sinuses and eyes (to where I can't open them) dizziness, increased fatigue and body aches, headache, and low-grade fever, with some variation in symptoms, severity, and length of time, but never more than two days in between each onset. I have high Epsteing-Barr titers and herpes virus, but nothing else can be found. Allergies have been treated/ruled out, and so have the environoment, as I have moved 4 times in the past 5 years. I do not have to leave the house or come in contact with anyone to become infected...symptoms hit very suddenly and severely. I am sure it is infectious...I used to respond with supplements, but now respond to nothing. I am married, with two boys, and have had to be put on disability and sacrifice nearly everything, including much of the care of my boys. I have been to countless doctors and none of them can make sense of this mysterious illness which I know goes deeper than my CFS, which is debilitating enough in itself. I don't know where to turn next, or what specialist to seek. I have never heard of anyone with my symptoms and neither have my doctors. Does anyone out there know what I'm going through or have any idea what I might try besides immunology and naturopathic care?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
