If you have not yet done so, you could try sulbutiamine!

    So I thought about this for a while, and I remembered that when I did the ketogenic diet (no carbs) my fatigue would go away entirely as well. Doing a little wikipedia reading on the thiamine page:

    The enzymes which are dependent on thiamine pyrophosphate are associated with the citric acid cycle(also known as the Krebs cycle), and catalyze theoxidation of pyruvate, α-ketoglutarateand branched chain amino acids. Thus, anything that encourages glucose metabolism will exacerbate an existing clinical or sub-clinicalthiamine deficiency.

    So thiamine is needed for sugar metabolism, hence if you eat no sugar and your body learns to rely on ketones, then the fatigue should stay away even if you decrease your daily thiamine.

    biohacker did you also have dizziness with your cfs symptoms? Like bad constant dizziness? Also did you have frequent urination and or were you urinating more than you took in. If so is that still the case? thanks.

    xks201, no I don't think so. If I got dizzy it was from standing up too fast but that's about it.
