In the fall 2009 I got lyme disease. Not diagnosed until March 2010. Swollen lymph and clavicular nodes, sore throat, chills, achiness, awful fatigue. 3 weeks doxycyline and lyme is gone. Blood test confirmed. Fatgue, bouts of chills and achiness daily didnt go away. July 2010- Rheumatologist said I had high Epstein-Barr antibodies. Not sure what that means.
The achiness and bouts of fatigue and chills never went away and its June 2011. Blood tests all came back normal. DIagnosed with CFS/Chronic fatigue Syndrome. They cant do a thing about it but I worry that there is something else wrong with me, just undiagnosed. I cannot get thru the day without an hour nap and I went from 5-6 hrs of sleep each night to 8 or 9 and its still not enough. I feel like I have the eternal flu. Any thoughts?? THANKS

PS I have 2 nodes on my thyroid. Ultrasound came back normal..same as last year.no growth.
