I am new to this forum and am looking for some answers to my mystery disease and I am worried that I have CFS. Last year in June, I had a really long day at work. I was outside for about
12 hours and lifting heavy objects. Then the next week I was sick with a headache, bad fatigue and GI symptoms. After about
a week, I felt a little better and continued on with my life. Then, the next week, I felt worse again. The first day would be a very fatigued feeling and I would go to sleep around 10 pm (early for me). And then the next couple days would be headaches, fatigue, nasal congestion on one side and GI symptoms. I lost 10-15 pounds in about
a 3 month span. I eventually went into my doctor and they ran blood work and everything came back normal. I also did a stool test, colonoscopy and an endoscopy and tested for Epstein-Barr. Nothing was found. The weirdest part of all of this is that this past summer, I felt great for about
a month straight. I was able to workout every day with no problems, I went out like normal and I felt great. Then, about
after a little over a month, I felt sick again with headaches, fatigue, nasal congestion on one side and just an overall malaise feeling. My face also feels stiff and I feel feverish but my temp never gets above 99.5 oral. I just recently went back into the doctor and they ran blood tests again. They ran CBC, inflamation, liver and kidney, D3 and B12 vitamin levels. They tested me for Lyme Disease and one of the 10 bands came back positive (usually 5 are needed). So I am getting retested nect week again. But does this sound like CFS? I have recently started to get pain in my leg and knee and I have been gluten free since Janurary. It has helped a little but I still get these flare ups. It should also be noted that I am a full time student in college with a part time job and my Monday-Friday schedule is from 9-4 every day of either work or class and I have not missed a day.
Sorry for the long post but I am just worried that I could have this and I am very frustrated with being sick for so long! Any help is greatly appreciated
