Hello everyone, I hope as you are reading this you are feeling as well as you possibly can given the circumstances we find ourselves in. I'm not too sure exactly what I hope to achieve with this post. I think I am just feeling very hopeless and tired of feeling unwell. Anyway.. Recently I have been wondering (as I'm sure many of us in the 'early' stages of CFS do) whether I do infact have CFS or whether I have something else, something curable, which has not been diagnosed. So I guess I was seeking some help from you guys, do you think it is worth seeing another medical proffesional to run some tests/refer me to a therapist or anything? or just continue what i'm doing? Basically, I have just turned 21. I am a male. Previously fit and healthy, and a footballer (soccer) at quite a high level. Also excelled academically and was doing well at uni before i fell ill (even though it may not seem like it reading this post, blame the brain fog!!). I first started to feel ill in November 2014, although in hindsight, I had being feeling a bit funky ever since a bout of gastroentiritis in september 2014. I was diagnosed with CFS by a specialist in June 2015, after many doctors visits and of course many perfectly healthy blood tests. I dropped out of uni a few months after the diagnosis, and quit my job and moved back with my parents in december. I have a good diet with lots of vegetables and not much sugar. I take a probiotic, fish oil, diatomaceous earth, d-ribose, and mitoactivate (which is meant to activate your mitochondria). I do not have severe CFS but it is enough to really really limit my daily life. As i said I have dropped out of uni and moved home, I pretty much have no social life, and i guess I am quite depressed. I am writing here because I am wondering if I do have CFS or whether it is something else. I am pretty sure it is CFS (a mild case as i'm sure some will be quick to point out, but still horrible), but I live in hope. One of the things that confuses me is - I am not super tired. I have energy. It is just I never feel like doing anything because of the brain fog, spacey feeling and pressure in my head. Also, PEM isn't super relevant to me. I can have a busy day (for a person with CFS) where I might go for a (slow) 20 minute walk with my dog, and read a book for 2 hours etc and I won't feel any worse the next day. When i do have crashes, or worseining of my symptoms, it is seemingly random, and will last a few days. I still have many symtoms associated with cfs, bad brain fog, can't tolerate noise, over stimulated very easily in social situations, especially if its with people i don't know very well. So do you think it is worth going back to a doctor or a specialist? Might it be depression/anxiety? I tend to think my symptoms cause my depression, not the other way round. Something like an inner ear problem? Or should I just be glad that overwhelming fatigue isn't a symptom of mine, and continue resting and eating well, praying that i magically return to full health? Again, not too sure what I hope to gain from this post, I guess sometimes its just nice to talk about your symptoms with people who actually know what you're going through. I hope this post isn't too hard to undertand and jumbled. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!
