I am still trying to find out what causes my chronic fatigue, maybe someone here can help me. Im sorry if this is too long. half a year ago i had a respiratory infection with sore throat, coughing, chest pain, hot flashes, itchy eyes, palpitations, air hunger, headaches, a rash on my stomach and stuffed up nose. everytime i felt its getting better and started to leave the house i became more and more tired - until i couldnt leave the bed anymore. i did have no sign of inflammation in my blood then and dont have now. I can sit again now, but still everytime i'm trying to walk more than 100 meters i get palpitations, hot flashes, air hunger, arm weakness and then must lie down. the only constant symptom beside my tiredness is a feeling of inflammation of my chest. i did also have severe sudden rip pain (especially when in a horizontal position) and for a week elevated c-reactive protein some time ago, maybe pleuritis. it resolved. an xray of the lung didnt show anything. when i have been at a lung doctor he diagnosed athma because i reacted to his stimulator, but i am sceptical to this diagnosis cos there can be lots of reasons for a positive test, i have no other symptoms of asthma and asthma doesnt make you bedridden. i dont wanna use a steroid inhaler when i have possibly infected lungs and also because i have a history of lyme disease where steroids should never be taken. but i dont think this is all the lyme because i have never had respiratory problems due to lyme. i also cant treat the lyme anymore with antibiotics because they all increase my brainfog badly. my thyroid, heart, adrenal glands seems to work fine according to several doctors. there are some things i still cant make sense of: nearly everyday i get better at about 8pm. i can walk then without problems and sometimes feel totally normal. how can that be possible? and sometimes when i didnt sleep very much my energy is much better. also sun-light seems to change my symptoms: i have much more energy while sitting in the sun, but when i then try to walk i get even stronger palpitations and weakness than without sunlight. does this make sense? i know some of the latter sounds typical for depression, but on the other hand i dont feel depressed at all, have no mood swings, dont cry and so on. any thoughts are appreciated.
