I m nearly 40 suffered alone with this condition - the only description I call it is chronic fatigue. Only recently I got the G.P to refer me to the Chronic Fatigue service in Leeds, U.K for assessment but the shrink reckons I don’t have C.F.S/M.E. I didn’t think I did, as the precursor seems to be normal health - viral infection - C.F.S/M.E. My symptoms have been with me for as far back as I can remember into childhood: Chronic Fatigue, Memory, poor concentration, lack of energy for exercise, and over the years total lack of sex drive, chronic weight gain and joint and muscle problems. With this is the usual barrage of physiological problems that go with these symptoms. It’s having to cope with the long periods of unemployment, lack of social skills and friends and a partner which doesn’t make me anamoured of life at all. All you get from the medical profession is "we doctors don’t have all the answers" which seems to me to be a cop out!!!. Is anyone else out there suffering similarly that could throw some light on my predicament?.

  • try drinking 4 litres of water minimum daily. check your blood salt levels (chloride) if they are low. sleep well and if you cant then try to sleep at least 8 to 10 hrs a day. very importantly keep a check on your digestive system and make sure that its ok. i think you should go for morning walks and slowly slowly build a light exercise regimen as per your capacity. all these things dont sound that helpful but they can be if you start monitoring them.try for 6 months. it a ***l of time if you can do it for that long and it will surely bring slow but permanent changes.Ps- avoid stress and unhealthy environments and people who dont make you feel good or thouse who trouble you.

  • This is really chronic fatigue and I suggest you to use B12 patch. All the problems you just told now will be solved with the patch. Just go through Internet to find out more about this patch. I think it’s b12patch.com.The symptoms show that you have deficiency of B12 for sure. Use that patches, it is prescribed by doctor. B-12 Patch is that it is so easy to take! You can look for more information at their site.Get well soon.

  • Have you had your Thyroid checked?? I felt like you do for several years before I was diagnosed> Check out symptoms for Thyroid problems. Have your TSH level checked. Also T3 T4 because TSH can be normal but others can be off. Good book is "The THyroid Solution" it discusses Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome also.Hope you get diagnosed soon!!! --whatever it is.
