I have been sick 1 year 1 month. It came on out of the blue- I just got really dizzy and felt like I was starting to pass out. A few days went by and I felt o.k. then the dizziness again. I felt so sick it was scary- I knew something was really really wrong. The doctor at the time thought I had an ear infection and gave me an antibiotic - then I got worse, felt flu like for about
a week, and then it spiraled down from there. I got anxiety about
six months after getting sick. I guess the stress of it all brought it out. I only had a few panic attacks- that was during the initial medical testing- I thought I was dying for sure. The doctor I am seeing now basically thinks that cases like mine will be better understood one day. He said 10 years ago, they would have called Lyme disease chronic fatigue syndrome, because they didn't know what it was. So I am assuming we have some currently undiscovered ailment. Maybe in time they will have a better name for it. We are the giunie(can't spell) pigs. I have s.l.o.w.l.y been working my way up to getting better- when I work it seems to help. I had a good day today- but I know I will have horrible days again before I fully recover. It seems like one step forward- two steps back. I know all about
praying and crying because I have done so much of it over the last year. I have been on my knees crying and praying to God to please take it away. I know the hell that you are going through. Roxy- are you getting any better? How did yours start? I think the Cymbalta could only help- I have been on Wellbutrin for the last 5 months. Did you have any viruses like epstein barr or mono before getting sick?
