Hi everybody. Im an 18 year old male living in Canada.
Any comments on my condition would be greatly appreciated. God bless...

around 6 weeks ago upon my return from Vacation i had a really bad flu. I was in bed for a week with a congested nose, sore throat and cough. I was in bed for 6 days straight with very low energy, a dizzy sensation and pressure in my neck and head. After a week I regained my energy and was back to my self 100% I starting going to the gym again and other activities---soccer---running... Our family moved away and I moved into university the following week. I was perfectly fine carrying heavy loads and i had more than enough energy for any task. After the first week in university i began feeling weird. A dizzy sensation accompanied by an energy loss and pressure in my head and neck soon increased as the days went by. I got a Mono test done and a blood test and everything came out fine.
I got another mono test for ebstein bann or something and stll waiting for results. I really don think its mono because why would i be perfectly fine for a week then get sick again? doesn't make sense. Anways I spent 2 weeks in a very low energy state im sure you all know. AFter 2 weeks i started feeling better again!!!!! i was like 90% back to my original self and this lastted for a good 5 days. Then out of no where the darn symptoms came back and i havbeen in a low energy foggy brain, dizzy slump ever since. Its really hard to enjoy life when you barely have enough energy to do daily tasks. I just got a girlfriend and its so darn frustrating as my sex drive is completely gone. I sleep for 11 hours and wake up feeling like crap. In my mind i want to go out and be active and have sex and laugh. But my body just wont allow it to happen. I have only been depressed once in my life and it was after I lost my cousin to cancer this year. I recovered a month later and was back to my cheerful self. This has nothing to do wit depression im 100 percent sure. I have a very stable mind.
Im also a health freak. LOTS of vitamins, raw fruits and vegetables. Soy milk,, dairy, organic food. I dont drink coffe, pop, or even eat candy.

can anybody relate to the progression of these symptoms?? Its odd that they come and go so quickly.
Its so hard to Keep up with UNiversity work load in the state i am in right now.

My guess is that i have a weird virus that they didn't detect in the blood/ mono tests. But would this effect my hormonal state? (no sex drive) bah i dunno, the symptoms really really sound like CFS.

Any comments greatly appreciated. dont forget the power of praying people.

thanks!! yeah

Lime disease has many symptoms, including worn-out and tired. May not be a bad idea to have your doctor check for it. A very simple blood test.

I had lime disease twice. The first time I had the classical bulls eye in my leg. The doctor took one look at it and told me he was not too sure what it was but, that he had heard enough about it to know that it warranted not to take any chances and start taking the antibiotics right away. He also took a blood sample to send it iut to the labs for analysis. By the time he got the positive answer back, I was already on my second week of antibiotics which I took for two months. After I finished the antibiotics he put me on the anti-lime vaccine where I took the injections 3 times within a year or so. supposedly that made me immune to lime disease. Anyway, some six months later I caught lime disease again. Turns out that the vaccine was not always effective, it caused arthritis problems and, it was taken out of the market. Meantime I underwent antibiotic treatment for a few months again. I never been quite the same agaion ever since my first lime disease bout. Occasionally I get very weak and tired and, other times have lots of energy. It could also be the result or combination of getting older. It does not really bother me that much except that sometimes I get sleepy and tired. But then, what the hell, I am 60 years old now. I had my first lime bout when I was about 50. The bottom line is, except for a very few doctors who had the opportunity to acquire some experience with lime, majority do not seem to really understand what they are dealing with. Therefore, try to find a doctor with some experience with lime.

Very frustrating to have one of these mysterious diseases for which there is no cure yet.  Must be especially frustrating for someone your age.
 
When I was young and complained, my mother always said, "Be glad you have your health."  I didn't know what she was talking about.  I thought everybody was healthy.

I have both. CFIDS first then Lyme. They're all but identical, symptom wise.

The best and most reputable definition of CFS so far is written for Dr.s but I think you'll get through it www.cfids-cab.org/MESA/ccpccd.pdf

The symptoms for Lyme, like I said, are all but identical to these. Both can have a sudden onset.

For your sake, I hope it's Lyme and you'll hurry to some Lyme Dr around to be properly tested.
You can be helped because you haven't had 'this' but for 6 weeks. That's a real good thing if it's Lyme. A good Lyme Doc will give you "adequate" anti-biotics. Not just the usual 30 days of something.

Ticker on the Lyme site can help you with that. I had the Western Blot test. The other test the regular Dr.s give don't work well at all a lot of the time.
But if you haven't already, swing over to see ticker on Lyme.

 

Edited to say:

Oh Rock, because you were a recent post, I thought this was a recent thread.  Oh my.  It's from October.  And I didn't see it till after I posted.  Oh Rock. tongue

So what happened to this person after all'a this ?

nono  Oh, if only we had spoken up sooner...! sad

eyes Then again, maybe he's alive and well and posting on the Lyme's Disease forum...and has forgotten he ever subscribed to a thread on that other go-slow posters' paradise !  tongue   yeah

Naw, snohare, I checked his post history when I noticed the date here. He was last seen on Lyme in Nov.

Not dead I'm sure ... just plum forgot to keep us updated on his "Lyme".

Thanks for the strange humor though.

My bookkeeper had a bad bout with lyme to the point that she could hardly walk.
Even after treatment for lyme was over she suffered for months with no energy.
She found a all natural product that she's been taking for awhile and is vibrant and full of life now
was quite a transformation.
