    Hi Faoiseamh, it would be good to redo all the tests, seeing as you have got so much worse recently, it is possible that there is something new going on or that your original illness has progressed to a level where it will show up on the tests.

    Dealing with doctors can be difficult, on this page and the links at the bottom of the page is useful information on how to deal with doctors and how to prepare for doctors visits http://www.rightdiagnosis.com/diagnosis/steps-doctors-visit.htm on these pages is a checklist of questions that a doctor should ask you about fatigue, you can print it out and answer the questions before you go to the doctors it will save heaps of time and stops you or the doctor forgetting important things, see http://www.rightdiagnosis.com/symptoms/fatigue/questions.htm

    It would also be a good idea to get a stool tests done for internal parasites if this hasn’t been done, if you have ever spent time with animals people can pick up things like worms, which can cause fatigue etc. Have you been checked for sleep apnea?

    I’ll have a look at your tests results when you have the chance to post them and maybe one of us here can come up with something useful or see some important tests that haven’t been done yet. I’ve been told many times by doctors that they have done all the tests and then gone to a new doctor who goes why hasn’t all these tests been done, so there is still hope that you have something treatable that has been missed.

    All the best
