Sure Orion, I'm 23 and I believe I have had CFS for 5 years now. My main symptoms are fatigue,severe lymph node swelling, "Brain fog", memory loss, can't concentrate the same, don't retain info as much. Those are my main symptoms. Along with many little ones. I can go for days. I have been tested for everything, to many to list. Most things I try make me worse. As far as myself I was an athlete 5 years ago, and full of energy. Slowly I got worse and worse. No major illnes to triger it, no major event. No ticks, nothing. I went from Mentally and physically being well, to physically falling apart. Luckily my family is supportive so mentally I have been great considering my situation.
I'm sorry for your experience with your Doctors, if it makes you feel any better I can relate to ridiculous conclusions do to my symptoms. I've gotten up and left laughing from a Doctors office more than once.
