@Tried= so the Dr. Concluded you have CFS? Dr's and scientists now KNOW from their studies that CFS is caused by chronic infections of a combination of bacterial, viral, fungal, and/or parasitical.
I was 1st diagnosed, by an MD, with CFS, but it wasn't until I became proactive in my own healthcare which involves research/reading and putting the puzzle of symptoms together to view my illness as a whole... MD' s tend to separate out each symptom and they tend to only treat the symptoms not the cause which doesn't lead to a cure...
Is there any possibility that you could go see an Integrative MD, or better yet A Lyme literate Dr?
My heart goes out to you because I suffered needlessly for YEARS by several doctors NOT testing me for Lyme disease and co-infections, viruses such as HHV6, & Mycoplasma and Chlamydophila Pneumoniae= CP is VERY COMMON & contagious!
The longer one suffers from CFS, the more likely permanent damage to joints, muscle, vascular(veins), and the central nervous system= nerve damage.
I've been on antibiotics, supplements, herbs, and other prescriptions for one year now and am doing better; although not totally cured because I let the illness progress too long before choosing the right DR.
I hope you are able to investigate THE Cause of your CFS and to get some tests, as mentioned above!
I share what I do, with hope that I can help prevent what happened to me being mis-diagnosed FOR YEARS!
