I posted a while ago regarding my original diagnosis of Lyme disease. I have done alot of reading on CFS but would like to ask those of you that actually have this illness some questions.
In order to be diagnosed do you have to have memory, cognitive or concentration problems? Is that one of the "requirements?"
I am still trying to figure out if I have been diagnosed properly or am I wasting my time taking mega doses of abx in order to battle the Lyme. I am going through a really rough time with severe exhaustion and truly am not sure what to do. It feels like someone has taken a turkey baster and is sucking the life/energy out of me. I feel totally drained. I also have hypothyroid and adrenal insufficiency but have been treated for this for 2 years. I have no muscle or joint pain. My only other symptom is muscle twitching/burning in my L calf.
Could someone who has been diagnosed please let me know what most doctors consider the major symptoms of CFS and how they come to this conclusion. I have been sick for 4 years and just really want to know what the correct diagnosis for me is. Thank you..
