This may sound strange to everyone here, but I have been sick for over a year.  All of my tests have come back normal.  I have been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome.  This has been a year of hell.  So many horrible symptoms.  I developed severe anxiety disorder after being sick for about 6 months.  I thought I was losing my mind- it was horrible.  I also had a few panic attacks. I have been on meds for 6 months now and the mental part is much better.  My health is better as well- but I still get sore throats and I have this horrible sick feeling all through my body. My therapist said that some of her patients suffering with anxiety complain of this. Can anyone relate? It is just a really gross feeling all over.  I am wondering if it could be from anxiety or if I am still sick.

I can relate with the awful feelings of fatigue as I have suffered with them for years.

I didn't go to a doctor, I just tried drinking coffee and such which backfired and now causes panic attacks.

Now I'm tired a lot of the time, but not so much anxious or panicky. Then again I don't leave the house very often, so that's probably because I'm staying in my comfort zone for the present time being.

I'm tired right now. LOL. I could go back to sleep RIGHT now even though I just had about 8 hours of sleep.

Hi Aquarius, I can relate to that.  I don't have chronic fatigue, but I do suffer from IBS which flares up when I get really anxious (and then I get more anxious and it get's worse - go figure!).  It makes me feel like blah and gives me insomnia, nausea and I have to stay at home with a hot water bottle.  I think anxiety and illness are inter-related, once you get into the anxiety mindset it makes you feel sicker.   I know it may be impossible for you, but I find light exercise helps, even just dancing around the stereo.  It sounds like you're having a rough year, hang in there and keep us posted.

to aqarias

a cause of cronic fatigue thats often missed is a sleep disorder such as sleep apnea, heavy snoring is usual but not always present, there may or may not be long periods with no breathing, sometikes the apnea or blockage happens on almost every breath

an overnight sleep study is needed for diagnosis, lots of info on the net

since there arent any expensive patented heavily advertised meds for the condition, not many docs think of it eyes

worth remembering that anxiety sufferers arent made immune to all other illnesses
