    Hi to all,
    Well after having nine days of feeling reasonable (not 100%) but better than I have felt in a long time, yesterday I was back to feeling ill again. I even started to think I was slowly recovering. I was careful not to over do things, but I think the last two days I had to get up quite early for hospital appointments (not been up early for a while) may have just been too much. Though it's tough going back to feeling ill again, I am grateful for the good days I've just had, I haven't had any good days until now.
    I had a appointment with the rheumatologist and he has done three more blood tests, and one urine test. If these come back clear he said my doctor can refer me to a me/cfs clinic. After examining me and asking me alot of questions, he said he can't find anything wrong, I am quite healthy and had I considered a holiday!
    I said no because even the travelling would make me ill, don't think he really got what I was saying though.
    So just waiting now for the results of these blood tests which I expect to be normal.
    Regards
    Jessie

    Hi Jessie,

    Unfortunately your story is all to common. It sounds like you have a positive attitude dispite your setback. This may be one of your most powerful tools. Hopefully you'll find that healthier state soon.

    Best,
    Gary
