Hello, sorry for my English, I am not a native speaker. I have been lurking for some time, reading about symptom and checking other related websites. I am 40 yrs. old and I have suffered idiopatic fatigue since I was 18. All of my symptom have been treated separately and never seen as a "syndrome", such as IBS, unexpected anxiety, fatigue, stress intolerans, post exertion malaise etc... So I went to wikipedia and checked CFS sympotm and this the list: 1) A new onset (not lifelong) of severe fatigue for six consecutive months or greater duration which is unrelated to exertion, is not substantially relieved by rest, and is not a result of other medical conditions. CHECK 2) The fatigue causes a significant reduction of previous activity levels. CHECK 3) Four or more of the following symptoms that last six months or longer: impaired memory or concentration YES post-exertional malaise, where physical or mental exertions bring on "extreme, prolonged exhaustion and sickness" YES unrefreshing sleep YES muscle pain (myalgia) SOMETIMES pain in multiple joints (arthralgia) YES headaches of a new kind or greater severity NO sore throat, frequent or recurring SOMETIMES tender lymph nodes (cervical or axillary) SOMETIMES 4) The CDC states other common symptoms include the following brain fog (feeling like one is in a mental fog) YES difficulty maintaining an upright position, dizziness, balance problems or fainting SOMETIMES allergies or sensitivities to foods, odors, chemicals, medications, or noise YES TO ALL irritable bowel syndrome-like symptoms such as bloating, stomach pain, constipation, diarrhoea and nausea YES chills and night sweats NO visual disturbances (sensitivity to light, blurring, eye pain) YES depression or mood problems (irritability, mood swings, anxiety, panic attacks)) YES No doctor has suggested CFS and I have doubts they know about it, but I feel my problem match CFS very well. At least 80% Some say it is psychosomatic but it's nonsense. Others have tried to treat single problems with different results. At the moment I am not working and looking for an explanation and some other way to deal with the problem then treating each symptom separately. I am going to learn about methylation protocols but I think I will have to do it myself as I have never found a doctor that is updated on this syndrome. Do you think I have CFS? Am I wrong?
