I am not sure if I have chronic fatigue syndrome. My family is beginning to think I am crazy, but I know I do not feel good. To make it short I got sick about 6 1/2 months ago. It started when I became very very dizzy out of the blue. I was told I had an ear infection, was treated with Levaquin, and things got very bad after that. I became so weak and tired I couldn't even get out of bed. I developed black circles under my eyes. I've had almost all the tests that can be done on a human and everything turned up negative. So as the months went by I remained very weak, fatigued, dizzy and faint,mild sore throats, headaches, and very sick. I am now at 6 1/2 months and what I have remaining is some fatigue- I can do a lot but at a certain point in the day I will get very run down ( it feels like I'm dying). I also have upper back pain (between my shoulders), and just recently I have developed severe anxiety. I am now on Effexor to help with the anxiety. It has made me a little more tired then I was but I am hoping that goes away. Does any of this sound familiar to anyone. I have never been sick before. I was a previously very healthy active 28 yr old and I am very devastated You're feedback would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!!!
