Have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?

Friday, August 01, 2014

Anybody out there have Chronic Fatigue syndrome? Is it something that you can have a diagnosis for?
Honestly, I feel the old "sick and tired" thing all the time, along with other "real" problems.
Of course the other problems could make the CFS I suppose. I eat healthy, exercise as I can, take meds for the depression, and get plenty of sleep. Slight accent on the PLENTY.
I have had 3 MD app'ts in 3 weeks. All my tests come back normal, even though I have had a constant high-pitched cough for probably 6 months. But with clear lungs, nobody thinks anything of that at all.
Of course I see my diabetic MD on Tuesday afternoon, and she's a pretty smart cookie. I hope she actually finds something. At least I'd be validated.
Anyway, excuse all the venting, God Bless you Everyone, and I'll pop back in when I'm feeling better. Thanks, Kathy

    CFS can be a side effect of many disorders. Tell your doc all your symptoms and the time of day it happens so she can figure out what is going on. I have it when my MS and Rheumatoid flare up and all I can do is take it easy until it passes. Hopefully you will know something soon. Keep us posted.

    CFS would show up with a test for Epstein Barr Virus. Have them test you. Get tested for Fibromyalgia too.
