Re: Could I have CFS

hey,

im sorry to hear about your condition.

I am 18 years old. My dr was close to diagnosing me with chronic fatigue syndrome last year after having depression. My symptons were basically the same as yours.

It was extremelly frustrating and tiring. I slept for 12-13 hours and woudl feel even worse from when i went to bed. I would perspire all night making my sheets wet and have aching mucles and headaches. You didnt say how long you have had this condition so it is impossible for me to say anything more.

All i can say is that i overcame it myself without the use of drugs which was difficult but rewarding.

I joined the gym which suprisingly helped me feel more energetic.

This next bit is very inportant. Get in a bed rorutine. Go to bed the same time every night (about 10pm) and get up the same time (8am possibly). I know this may sound stupid but too much sleep can acutally make you feel worse than not enought!! And certainly DO NOT sleep anyimte during the day!!

There is light at the end of the tunnell!

Write back to let me know more information.
