thanks for your reply.
I have only had regular eye tests at the opticians, just the standard test you have to determine which glasses you need.
I am seeing an endecronologist on monday, i've finally been referred by my doc after he admitted he knows very little about CFS, and after years of going to docs and being told my blood tests are normal so there's nothing wrong.
Yeah i'm worying about MS too, but having read through the symptoms of CFS and MS about half of it seems to fit both and half of it doesn't seem to fit anything. It's so frustrating, i guess i just need to know what i'm dealing with, it's like trying to fight an invisible enemy.
Anyone elses experiences of these symptoms would be appreciated,
thanks, Sarah :o)
Yes! Now that you mention it, yes I do.
Increased sensitivity to bright light
and a strange 'pressure' behind the eye socket, i assumed it was some sort of sinus irritation
my eyes also get 'tired' for lack of a better word, it feels like it takes additional 'effort' to look left and right
no vision problems and the pressure feeling comes and goes. I did just recently read an article about a link between chronic fatigue syndrom and chronic sinus problems, i'm wondering if the eye pressure is part of that. I've got a follow up with my specialist and will plan to bring that up as well. I'll let you know what he thinks.

Yes I have all your symtoms and more and after 2 years of being told I have cfs/fm I found out I have lyme disease, get tested through IGENEX labs to see if you have it and remember you can have neg test and still have it. if you have had it for a while the tests are neg alot of the time becouse it hids very well.
