Two weeks ago I had a nasty cold over the weekend, had it been during the week I would have missed worked. Then the next week I had wrist surgery, and naturally the day before this I started my period. After my wrist surgery I was in a lot of pain, still am at times, and the pain medication made me hyper so I only slept 2-4 hours a night and went back to work for two days last week. Since last friday I have been miserable. I have done nothing but literally sleep until almost 4pm every day, I've missed two days of work because I can't function. I went to the doctor on sunday and they put me on an antibiotic for a sinus infection. Yet here I am two days later and I can't even seem to function unless I let myself sleep to at least noon.

I feel like I've completely lost my mind....I had a low grade fever, that went a way, I have a little bit of a headache, I have no appetite, I'm slightly congested, but nothing major, I just want to sleep even after being up for a little while. I barely had enough umph to take a shower this morning.

Does this sound like something that will go away? I don't know what to do....

I am no doctor, but hospitals are for sick people. You may have picked up a bug or two from someone else in the hospital. Good luck

dear doghouse,
dumb question but just making you have CFS or do you suspect you have it? only reason i ask is that i know in the past antibiotics have made my fatige skyrocket, i do know that pwc's have more slow-wave activity anyway and anything, even a simple cold to "normals", surgery and medications can wreak havoc with our up and hope you feel better soon!!
