Is there a particular way of working your way through this site when you're not sure where to start to investigate possible causes/treatment/research/therapies? I find I'm completely overwhelmed and keep reading things I've never heard of before - sometimes just working out what initials stand for takes a huge amount of energy but I totally understand why people use them! Just recently I came across adrenal fatigue by chance which appeared to fit a lot of my symptoms and scared the living crap out of me but I keep thinking there could be lots of other stuff out there but I don't have the energy to go through it all and I find I just sit and stare at the screen and think I don't know where to start. If anyone can point me in the right direction as to where to begin after you've done an introductory post and spent a few weeks looking around the forums, I'd be really grateful. The point I'm at is having become really ill 2 years ago but realising this was several years in the making before that, being diagnosed with CFS in October 2016, had some basic tests done and just been told nothing has shown up. I was making a very slow recovery but in February this year had a relapse. Was recovering slowly again but about 5/6 weeks ago something got much worse and I was plagued with very distressing anxiety symptoms. That seems to have died down a bit in the last couple of weeks but I have no idea why. Or what set it off in the first place. I have a referral in to a local place which does something called Anthroservices Therapy - I'm not entirely sure what this consists of but it seems to be a holistic approach to the whole thing which I will certainly welcome. At this point I'll try anything. I just feel I need to gen up on a whole bunch of stuff but don't know where to start - or how not to feel so overwhelmed with it all!
