Hi I haven't been diagnosed with Cfs but a specialist told me I have mitochondrial dis function and methylation problems. Anyway I know both of those are Cfs related do thought I must have similar issues as you. I do not have the flu like symptoms but I am exhausted - it's like a crushing weight. I've had this for probably 20 years and was told it was adrenal fatigue, which I do also have but could never mend them. I've pushed thru life and run on adrenaline. Now that I know I have to rest the crash is overwhelming physically, emotionally and mentally and spiritually. Someone else is typing this for me. I can't say more than a few words it's so exhausting. My brain is stuck like it just ran out of energy. I have a ton of anxiety and am severely depressed. I can't function but have to because I live in a group home and they think I'm just depressed and make me do things like meals, showers etc. The scary part is the crash is still getting worse I think cause the adrenaline is slowly leaving me body. I feel like I'm dying at times like my organs are shutting down. If I've pushed for 20 years, have I ruined my body past being able to heal it. Anyone else feel like this. I also have this wierd jerking in my solar plexus when I wake in the morning. I have tinnitus and other problems. I can't handle how overwhelming the exhaustion is so I panic and feel a bit better from the adrenaline after. How do I handle this??
