Hello, Everybody!
I just wanted to say "hi" and introduce myself. I am so grateful I found this forum! I am not alone in my struggle and - I am not definitely crazy like I was about to believe!
I have been diagnosed with Crohn's disease and now my dr is almost positive I have CFS. Not fun at all. I've had this severe fatigue, muscle and joint stiffness and pain, chest pains, lack of appetite and depression since last July. And two months ago I completely collapsed into my bed for 5 weeks!!! I couldn't work, walk, cook, live... That was really traumatizing for me in a way. It never happened before. (and I hope it never will...!)

I read your posts carefully, and take your advices - they are all really good. I am sorry for all those that suffer, because I do understand what it all feels like.
I myself started using Ginseng - 2000mg a day and Rhodiola - a fantastic herb that improve energy levels and helps with mental focus and performance drastically. This herb is my life saver. I usually buy it at Whole Foods.

Blessings to you all!

Hi and welcome Agnes.
Glad you found this forum.
Your symptoms do sound like CFIDS, but many other conditions can cause similar symptoms, so I hope your doctor rules out everything that should be ruled out.
Have you been checked for vitamin and mineral deficiencies?
