Hello, thank you for the replies.
My doctors never ever seem to conclude what I have, they've given me a couple of tests here and there, but they have never had significant information for me on what is the cause to my problems.
I have been told for years I have swollen thyroid glands, I was checked for glandualer fever early on in my illness and I did not have it, but they have not further tested my glands atall. I also had a persistant cough for years, as if a tickle in my throat, ALL the time, eventually that went, but as usual the doctors didn't try too hard, just looks down my throat, etc. and never concluded anything.
I never considered Lyme disease until now, but now that I think about
it I have plenty of the symptoms, thank you for mentioning that.
You two have definitely given me a few things to research more about
, thank you and if you have any more advice i'd appreciate it.
Well I feel like its worth giving my doctors another try, I have an appointment with a doctor a relative recommends next week, i'll bring a list of my symptoms and go over everything, I'll also bring all information from this site. I was never given an extensive line of tests or officially concluded that I had CFS, so I want them to exhaust every other possibility before I will be able to accept what I have, i've tried to get help numerous times but never was I asked for overall symptoms or a full story, I think if I force this on in my appointment and just pre-write it. They may actually spark a few ideas as to another illness I may have.
