I'm a college freshman, my ME/CFS symptoms started a few years ago. It was also suspected that I had the PANDAS thing going on when I was in elementary school and on up. I personally believe these responses to infection and post infection is tied together rather than separate things. Anyways (back to my point) I am a student, I've had to deal with quite a lot over the years, but now as my ME/CFS symptoms have gotten worse and I have the whole new environment of college to settle into, I've run into quite a few new obstacles. I commute from my house since I live so close, and am involved in two committees along with my full schedule. This is my second semester and so far (I'm only about 1/4 of the way through) it's going pretty well... at least a lot better compared to fall semester. I'm typically an A student -- I'm really dedicated to my studies and truly passionate about them, but fall semester I ended up dropping my math class halfway through the semester and my grades dropped quite a bit (2 A-'s, 1 B- and 2 C's) it's obviously taking a toll on my overall GPA which is annoying since I know I could have done better (half of the classes were even easier than some of my high school classes). Right now I have all A's and one B- but like I said, it's only the 1/4 mark of spring semester. Also during fall semester I had a really really bad fall and had some almost mini-seizures that were obviously really awkward. I also get short of breath and get really pale with purple fingers/toes and finger/toe nails along with numbness and tingling... it really freaks me out. I had testing done and everything (thyroid hormone tests, iron levels, and blood cell counts) were normal, I just had some protein in my urine. My doctor gave me Cerefolin NAC to try and said Okay, so maybe this ended up being more my story and questions about coping with ME/CFS at school, but I do want to know: Is there are any other students (or even former students or people in the workforce) and how do you manage/cope (especially with the fatigue, dizziness, and cognition issues)?
