I have found 0 stories of people recovering from post-viral fatigue on google. This tells me that people who have post-viral fatigue don't get better. They stay sick past 6 months and it never goes away. I think the whole concept of "post-viral fatigue" is a BS diagnosis. I just wish doctors stopped lying to people that they will get better when there is 0% chance of this happening. People with "post-viral fatigue" should be diagnosed with CFS immediately, regardless of it's 6 months or not and never be told that they have a post-viral thing that will go away by itself. The 6 months criteria is complete rubbish and I doubt it's even based in anything scientific. I'm sick of being told that what I have "could be something else" or that it might magically disappear as I've only been ill since December (almost 5 months ago). My chances of recovery are 0%. 100% of people who are ill at 4 or 5 months will be ill until they day they die. Everyone who has this had only been unwell for 4 or 5 months at some point.
