@matt321 @femtosecond99 what did you guys do to recover? How come you still here in this forum?
Do you take LDN or any antidepressant and consider yourself recovered? What treatment do you follow?

I want to think is possible, after two years and a half trying alternative medicine, diets and supplements I couldnt find any improvement and now I'm on amitryptiline 10 MG and 400 mg alfatocoferil. I have improved my sleep and pain with these two meds A LOT, however Im very afraid of the side effects. I want to try LDN too, but I see it has many side effects... I don't know if continue eating healthy and resting or gradually upgrading the dose of amitryptiline and starting with LDN. I read so many different approaches that Im confused...
See my previous posts. I don't take any drugs or supplements (and didn't use any to recover). I come here occasionally to help others, although I don't seem to be very welcome so I only post occasionally. Most people who recover don't hang out on these forums.

They recovered using psychological approaches. LDN is generally well-tolerated. Naltrexone is given to drug addicts in a ten times larger dose than used for autoimmune diseases, so it's quite safe. Of course any drug is likely to produce more side effects for those with ME/CFS than healthy population. But compared to antidepressants, I would say LDN is easier for many to tolerate.

I've been already to a couple. Didn't help me... My CFS started with a very strong pharyngitis. Ive had tonsillitis and pharyngitis all my life, gradually losing my health over the years... Im 30 now, 2 years and a half I got CFS and I want to find a psychologycal reasn for it but I cannot find it.

Im thinking maybe my body some day will just heal itself when he is ready. Im not going to spend more money in suplements.
