The exhaustion, the swollen glands, and getting sick frequently can all be symptoms of CFS. I don't know enough about
herpes to know if an outbreak can make you sick too or weaken you immune system. I really should learn more about
CFS. RIght now I have a lot of lupus symptoms and I'm in the frustrating process of trying to get a diagnosis.
I have been in similar situations that you have been in with doctors. I think a lot of docs don't want to take the time and energy to try to figure out what is wrong if they aren't able to figure it out right away. Of course, a lot of docs like to say it's depression if they can't figure out what is wrong.
