This year has been crappy for me as far as cfs go's. Since the start of the march and coming into the aussie winter my family has had this bug. My wife has had more time off work through sickness then i can remember. Myself i find it hard to tell if its cfs or some other infection but the last few months i have had chronic headaches which ease with tramadol which i have been dropping like tic tacs to cope with the headaches and to get through work. I have also had post nasal drip as well. My last lymphocyte test i did a while back showed i had my ebv/cmv under control but i still felt like crap. SO today i saw my non cfs GP who is cool and understand my cfs situation and helps me out with scripts etc but we leave the off label cfs treatments to my cfs doc who has a better handle on cfs. Anyway i gave him the run down on the last few months and the run down on the rest of the family with this bug. He seems to think its a sinus infection, which makes sense but its hard to know whats going on when u feel like crap most of the time. So he has started me on some antibiotics and given me some repeats. My wife did improve with antibiotics but cant seem to shift it, but my doc has me on some stronger abx. Fingers crossed it dam well works. Im hoping its this simple and alot cheaper then 6 months of valcyte which i might not even need to consider if treating this sinus infection works. Its really hard to distinguish between a cfs crash/relapse and some other illness. If it wasnt for the rest of my family being sick i wouldnt even considered it and may have left my docs today with prozac, lol, at least i would have been happy feeling like crap with a sinus infection, he he he. cheers!!!
