Hi everyone my name is Sam i am a 22 year old female from the UK.
A bit about myself: Well i am a student currently studying Sport and Exercise Science. Part time i teach gymnastics and i enjoy doing sport.
For the last month I had been feeling very tired, sore muscles, sore joints and flu like symptoms, my lympnodes in my groin are also very sensitive. I exercise regularly but not as much as i use to when i did gymnastics 3 times a day so when the tiredness started i assumed it was i wasnt exercising enough. As the weeks went on i started feeling worse, more tired, muscles very weak and sore, worse after exercise, glands were still sore and felt really crap. It also didnt matter how much sleep i got or even eating healthier. So i took myself to the docs and he did blood tests for thyroid, anemia, glandular fever, hiv and various other things, and they all came back clear. He then suggested i may have a viral infection and rest and fluids will do me good, but ive tried that and i still feel horrible. Ive been reading up on CFS and i do have a lot of the symptoms, i am not diagnosing myself as i am not a doctor but i do think this could be a possibility?
Any views and opinions will be helpful.
