So basically I haven't been diagnosed properly, merely told yes you must have CFS and brushed off by gp's. I live in Australia and cannot find someone who specialises. I fainted one day at the park, the next day I went away and after I came back it was my hens night- when getting things ready that day I remember feeling wierd, dazed and couldn't think clearly. I blamed it on being overwhelmed. It started coming and going for the next few weeks. The doctor told me it was nothing. Since then I have gotten worse and worse constantly. I now can't think clearly ever. It is the strangest feeling. I go to the shops and I just don't feel all there, just spaced Out, like in a dream or on drugs and just have no mental clarity. I can't really explain it.. Is this brain fog? This is my most debilitating symptom. I've had an MRI, blood tests and tried anti depressants (at my doctors request as they said it was depression, I know it's not) the only thing that's come back is I've previously had 2 viruses including EBV. I also am extremely fatigued constantly, can't have a big day or I spend the week in bed.( for example I went out to dinner last night, hardly knew what was going on, as soon as I got home at 8.30 I fell straight to sleep, and haven't been well at all today) Sore muscles and joint and sore throat, migraines and also I get tingly/itchy glands/lymph nodes under my arms. The doctors told me there's nothing I can do about CFS. but I feel I can't live like this, is there anything I can do to make the "brain fog" and fatigue more manageable?
