I'm new to group; suffering from what is called CFIDS now? I don't think it has a name yet, because it is clear my immune system has a dysfunction. I miss exercising and the benefit so much; been out of the gym for almost 2 yaers now. I tried going back today for a very light workout cause i thought maybe...just maybe i'm better. Within one hour after my 'light workout' i was out cold on the couch. Im so disappointed to hear the report on this page - i wish so much graded exercise was the answer. I was althletic and very fit when this came on with EBV and the 'mono' symptoms just come back if i exert myself. Even -...jees i did 5 minutes walking and one-two reps on machines for maybe 30 minutes.Now that pain is back in middle of head and i can hardly stay up.
