Hi, I am new to this forum & I have a question. I was dx'd with Fibro about 4 yrs ago & always told my Dr I could feel something else going on besides the Fibro. When I am flaring with my fibro I can still pace myself & get things done unless it is a bad flare. She sent me to a Rhuematologist (sorry about the spelling of that) who finally dx'd me with CFS.
For the last 3 years when October rolls around I become totally fatigued, can't hardly move & spend through February this way. I become depressed, I take an antidepressant for that & got myself a full spectrum light but they didn't help during the winter. I have flulike symtoms, acid reflux, nausea & live in pj's & bathrobes. Then, come Spring, it lets up & my Fibro symtoms come on for the rest of the year. From all that I have read this is par for the course with CFS. Now, finally, my question:
It is late November & I don't have any of those symtoms. Oh, I have flares here & there & I have been waiting for the "other shoe to drop". I have so much energy this winter I am afraid I am dreaming. Is there such a thing as having your CFS go into remission? If so, is this a permanent thing? Can it last for months, years? I hope so. I keep worrying & waiting for that awful fatigue & then worrying & waiting for all of this "worrying" & "waiting" to really bring it on. LOL
Glad to meet you all, this is a wonderful forum. Thank you. Denise
