I was diagnosed with CFS in February this year. My CFS is mostly due to my Epstein Barr being in a flare. Are there others here who suffer from this type of CFS? I didn't know it, of course the doctor didn't mention it to me, and I didn't know what I was looking at, yet my Epstein Barr was in a flare in Oct 05 also. Does it recover, or has mine probably been in a flare for a long time? The numbers are higher now than in 05. I also have sleep apnea, gluten intolerance, neuropathy, raynauds, arthritis, and possibly Sicca Syndrome. So, there are many factors at play, sometimes makes it difficult to know which problem is causing the problems.
Thanks for adding me to the group!
We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients...don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/h feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!
